  1. I own an Iwill KK266-r, and have always used WPCRSET to permanently change
    register 52 to the value EB to decrease idle temps on my my Athlon 1.33Ghz
    from around 45 degrees to around 30 degrees. I've been using the 03-07-01
    BIOS which was very stable of Win 98se, but having upgraded to a WinXP
    platform, have found that I get a lot of instability issues, especially
    during video playback. As such I was going to try some of the more recent
    issues, particularly the well-received Luckydaze versions. Has anyone used
    these, and if so can they recommend one which works well with XP, and tell
    me whether or not they come equipped with the register52 cooling hack?

    Thanks in advance.

    X-No-Archive: Yes

    The register 52 cooling "hack" is nothing more than forcing idle loop.
    You can get the same results with software, like V-Cool, CPU-Cool, Rain
    and the like. The best solution is to ensure the computer case has
    adequate airflow and that you have a proper heatsink and fan on processor.
