SubjectRe[2]: K7/Athlon optimizations again. (The sacrifices worked??) (VIA KT133A chipset)

look at this
i have a bp6 who has the same problem whit the dual celeron, and here
is the solution for it, looks your motherboard and see if its the same
problem, the celerons are fine whit this overvolt, they are prety

its abit ... it cuold be ;)

LG> just my 2 cents
