I was running my AXP 2100+ (1733) @ 2360mhz and due to some electrical interference from one of my pumps el reset o. Now I have a Duron XP (64k cache) that doesn’t like overclocking. So I ordered a Barton 2500.
This is meltdown #4. Athlon 1333 dead 2x 1400 dead XP(Duron) 2100+ Sick.
Well, at least you can sell it to someone as a duron :smile: .
I'm lucky I didn't join the 'killed athlon' club with my old T-bird 800Mhz chip. when I upgraded the machine, I found the HSF clip (one of the old ones that only use the central tab on the socket to clip onto) had almost come off . if I'd moved the PC for any reason it would almost certainly have fallen off... and toms showed what happened to the non-XP athlons when that happened..

I think it was EM interference from a nearby pump or a possible voltage spike, although it was plugged into a UPS. I’m now working on some pump shielding to prevent further problems and changing which items share the same power.
You feel a lot less awful when you kill a chip you paid $100 for almost a year ago.
