I'd rather say it may be related to how your MSI board supplies power to the
Athlon, rather than the Athlon itself. I've been using ABit KT7A +
Athlon@1.1GHz for half a year now, without a _single_ stability problem -
and this machine is my primary workstation, being switched off basically
only when I sleep.
I have Matrox G400/YMF724/NIC/CDR/DVD/three HDs (two in RAID) and... 250W
A friend has purchased basically the same config, he has one HD less but his
CPU is overclocked to 1150MHz. He uses both Linux and Windows and also does
not report any problems.
Ps. One probably important thing is that I'm only using HPT370 IDE
controller under Linux.
