Ya I had a really good C566 that I sold to a friend a few months back, I have gone all AMD now. It ran at 1020 with 1.9v cooled by an Alpha pal 6035. The cpu was a very early one I got it right when they first came out.

The machine was 100% stable you could play any game you want on it. I think the mobo was an Abit VT6X4, I sold it with the cpu. Funny thing is when I first got the cpu 1020 was not stable but after about a month of heavy use and burn in it became stable.

Ya the PC100 could be the cause of the trouble. If I remember right, it has been a while I was running it at 120fsb. PC100 might not run reliable at that speed. Can you try some PC 133 maybe from a friend or something?
