Asus A7N8X-X Motherboard 400 fsb
XP3200
500 mb ram

If I run the processor at full speed it restarts itself, if I turn down the CPU external frequency to 166, it runs no probs, is it just a bigger fan or is it something else.

Are you using the stock cooler or are you using another cooler?

Did you install the CPU and cooler yourself or did you buy the system "ready-built". There could be a few possibilities that might cause a problem like this:

The cooler may not be seated properly and isn't making proper contact with the CPU.

There's no thermal compound on the cooler/CPU.

There are more than this but concentrate on these two first.
