XP Cache meltdown.

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.

  1. hehe that is wretched. How long did each of those Athlons last before dying?

  2. I crunched the first two, as I was always adjusting the cooling on them. The third died from a water accident. The XP was the only one that got sick from running too fast.

  3. sounds like you put too much voltage through it, cache normally is one of the first things to go when you overvolt, what voltage were you running?

  4. 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 :eek: . 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..

  5. ROFL a 2.3ghz Duron bahahaah


  6. 1.65-1.7v not too much.

    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.
