Hello. I have a AMD Sempron 2500+ on socket A , wich runs default at about 1750 mhz , and i overclocked it , raising the FSB to 200 , wich raises the cpu's frequency at about 2100 mhz. I kept it overclocked for about 4 months now , and the system has remained stable. Played a few games without problems. Now , i've just purchased NBA Live 2006. I installed the game , set the graphic options to max. , at a resolution of 1024x768@32bits, and played it a couple of times. Nothing wrong so far. I started the game the third time , and when i was at the end of a match , the system just rebooted. When the hardware monitoring software started after reboot , it indicated that my CPU temp was at 127 degrees , while my sys temp was at about 42. I restarted the system again , and everything went back to normal. Ran the game again , system crashed after about 20 mins of gameplay , *AGAIN*. Rebooted the system again , the hardware doctor indicated the same 127 degrees cpu temp. Can i fix any of this ? I don't recall this happening on other games. The cooler is the AMD box one. The mobo is a dfi nf2 ultra infinity.

127 degrees or faranheit coz if its 127 degrees then your cpu would have been toasted straight away. Also what type of power Supply are u using it may not be sufficient enough to handle your sys.

wat does it say for

+3.3v
+5v
+12v

its on the PSU sticker

+3.3v usually stays at 3,10-3,15. i also got some warnings related to this. +5 v is about 4,97-5,00 and +12 is -11,70. I uped the vcore to 1,7v and locked the agp to 66 mhz when i overclocked it.
