    I have a AK79D-400Max motherboard that is overclocked to 2.2G. I have
    the FSB set to 200 with a multiplier of 11 and no changes to CPU
    voltage.(1.65V) The board has a 512K Elixer PC3200-400 DDR memory
    stick. The CPU is Athlon XP2500+ Barton. Sometimes when I turn the
    pc on Dr. Voice tells me that I may have a problem with my CPU. I
    have to unplug the power cable from the pc and then reconnect it and
    power up again. Then it works. My concern is that is there something
    wrong with my motherboard? From all the articles I've read my
    settings are not at all too severe. I have extra cooling fans
    installed and the CPU temp runs between 48 - 52C.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated. Emails to Aopen and posts on their
    forum have not been answered.

    The problem you describe was similar to one I went through once. For me it
    turned out to be an power supply that was not producing power as specified.
    Try another power supply - one that you know is properly working. " I use
    an Antec 350 watt PSU and it works fine on my AK79G Max with 2 CDs - 2 HDs -
    512MB PC3200 - etc.

    Ok, and thanks. Although I am using a brand new case and 400w power
    supply you make a very good point. I have since increased my CPU
    voltage from 1.65 to 1.675 volts and so far have not a further
    occurance. Again thanks for your input.
