Overclocked CPU/ PC boot up question

Hi i've just overclocked my q6700 to 3.2Ghz and all seems to be ok. Initially it was a test to just learn how its done but my temps dont seem to be much higher even though im on stock cooling for the CPU. (using core temp).

Now a little worry is that when i first turn my PC on, It will power up then quickly power off, Then power on and boot normally.
This happens if i have left the PC off for a while, If i turned it on and off now it wouldn't do it.

Basicly i just wanna know if this is a problem or just a "quirk" or whatever because of the OC

Windows Vista 64bit
Intel Q6700 OC 3.2Ghz
2GB Corsair Ram at 800Mhz

cheers for any replies

For Intel s775 systems when you change some things in
BIOS ( like overclocking) they will turn off/on afterwords
and each time you do this.

It should be nothing to worry about.

Its a good thing, don't worry about it. its just the Pc self testing (If you could put it that way) its loading the bios. it protects a voltage spike to your components especially if you OC'd The FSB or Over volted Anything

Enjoy :D
