I think I kinda ran my CPU at high frequency a little too long, when I got home today, started up computer, booted windowsXP. After about 1 hour, i was just beginning to have fun overclocking my new Vid card, my monitor turned off. I thought i killed the vid card, so i took my vid card to another comp, worked fine. Then process of elimination, found out the CPU was dead. There was no physical dammage so I requested for an RMA, just got the RMA #, gonna ship it out tomorrow. Now i'm stuck with a piece of sh*t Duron 1.0G overclocked to 1.3G. Anybody had any experience with Intel RMA before? How long does it take for them to return a processor to you?
I noticed you're using the P4P800 motherboard, have you ever monitored core voltage to find out what the true peak was?
