Hi everybody...
I must admit that I am not really experienced in hardware and cooling and all. But i consider i have pretty good cooling equipment. I just bought a Tt Volcano 9 cooler and even though the fan makes an awful noise the cooling all in all seems pretty good to me. I have an Abit NF7 board with a Athlon XP 2400+. I'm using a stick of 333 mhz memory and one of 400 mhz. Both are obviously running at 266 mhz because the 2400+ is 266 mhz fsb. I bought the 2400+ knowing that and i thought i would be able to run at least 300 mhz fsb/dram without problems.
But for some reason even at 280 mhz everything becomes very unstable and the system crashes randomly. Anyone have an idea what it could be? I'm sure it's not the PSU because it's a very recent Tt 480W that came with my Tt Lanfire v2000a case (or something like that).

Any ideas/help will be appreciated.
