Hey Dimmreaper,

I'm just after doing a few experiments, now I attached a fan to the voltage regulator chip which was pushing 30cfm of air on to the chip. These are my results,

2.14 Volts boots to Win XP but soon after reboots
2.1 boots to WinXP but after 20mins-45mins reboots
2.08 same as 2.1volts
2.04 no problems.

From the above results I dont think temperature is an issue here since placing a fan on the voltage regulator chip made no difference my Vcore. I can only conclude that the chip or some other factor does not like a Vcore above 2.04 volts......

Maybe Epox Tech can help!!!!
