    Well, if you are running 2.5GHz then you are overclocking. Obviously, your overclock is not stable. You need to list all your system specs and speeds/timings.

    As casecutter said your cpu is overclocked. A default x2 3800 runs at 2.0ghz. Any one who has overclocked theirs to 2.5ghz needs to have a aftermarket cooler to make it run stable. However there might be another problem. I had a similar problem on my other computer with freezing and crashes, i tried everything i could think of but in the end all i had to do was switch the slots that the RAM was in. If you have two sticks try putting them in the other two slots on your motherboard. Dont know if that'll help but it worked for me when nothing else would.

    Good show, do you have a DFI motherboard by chance? They seem to be picky about the position of the RAM alot more than others.
