I'm from Brazil, so sorry about my english.
I got an AMD XP 2000+ and it should work @ 1667mhz, but i can't get it working at that clock, actually i can, but my computer restarts and goes to the BIOS screen that shows a message like "improper cpu speed..." and then i change the speed from 1667mhz to 1250mhz and it works fine, does anybody knows what should i do?

thx!

i didn't change anything, it just started not accepting the normal clock that is 1667mhz, and then i have to use my computer @ 1250mhz

oh i gotta, but that isn't the problem. i'm monitoring the cpu temperature, fan speed, etc... the only thing that isn't normal is the +3.3v thing, it's @ 2.976 and sometimes (very frequently) it goes to 2.94/2.96 and the Asus Probe (the monitoring program) alerts for that thing, i don't know what it means.

That sounds like you may have a weak power supply. What brand is it and what are the specs on the 3.3 and 5 volt rails (should be on the label on the side of the power supply)
