I think most probably is the CPU itself cause problem, the heat. I build my Athlon TBird 1300MHz, with one seagate 10gb hd, 2-cdrom, SBLive!5.1, Keyspan Firewire card, 350watt PSU, Elsa Gladiac GTS, one fan suck in, two fans suck out. I use the Asus A7A Mobo. Everythings is OK after I change cpu fan to 7000rpm,wbk38. My temp is maintain at 52-58 degree. Last time i use the K-6, also hang due to the heat. A good ventilation in casing and high quality high speed fan definitely will help a lot. I use the WinXP proffesional edition

I have now bought a coolermaster case which has helped a lot, but at a cost! I still need a higher speed chip fan but then i think all will be finally well.

SB Audigy Platinum w/live drive
and 6 fans.

All ran perfecton my 300 wat PSU.
Maybe it has something to do with the abit because I had the same problem with an Abit board. Same config only thing that was different was I canged MBs Maybe it is a bad motherboard or abit supplies voltace incorrectly.... who knows.

I had some random crashes with an Abit SE6. After I bought the Asus CUSL2 I didn't have those problems. Now why that is, I don't know. For the most part the Abit was just fine. And it could have just been something random. But since the Asus has run so well, I haven't bothered trying the Abit again. Just my one cent.

I guess I am lucky guys, have an Athlon 1.33 over clocked to 1466 with a volcano II in an antec sx1040 server case with 2 blow and 2 suck fans, it runs around 125 degrees F (overclocked)which is around 50 c, I think, around 109 F at normal speed (around 42-43 c), ...no problems at all, running xp professional, however, I am not quite sure why seti at home will take less than 6 hours while using the pc and about 18 hours when in screen saver - the motherboard is an ASUS A7A266
