Does you motherboard definately support that speed of proccessor? Post make/model and bios revision if possible and you'll get more definate responses.

sounds like an overheating problem, did you use your old hs/f, and did you clean and re-paste the proc before fitting hs/f to 2400xp. i had this problem and it was because i had removed the proc to try in another mobo. on putting back it kept freezing though the temps didnt go too high.

once i cleaned and re-pasted it was and still is ok.
