    win 98se or winxp for oc.

    Is it possible that I could overclock my CPU better with win 98se than now with winxp pro?

    Somtimes winxp just wont boot
    for example 12 * 133 ---> 1600mhz works with win 98se, but it wont work with winxp.
    How is this possible?

    My specs.
    T-bird 1400(266)
    k7t266pro-r
    256 (266)
    maxtor 30 gb
    gf mx200 (32 mb)

    Same here... Windows 2000 and XP are far more stable for overclocking!

    tes the NT kernel is far more stable than 9x.

    By the way, what does BTW stand for?

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.
