  1. Nothing like the smell of fried CPU.
  2. Get a 1.3ghz. much better chip anyway.

    Abit IS7 - 3.0C @ 3.6ghz - Mushkin PC4000 (2 X 512) - Sapphire 9800Pro - TT 420 watt Pure Power
    Samsung 120gb ATA-100 - Maxtor 40gb ATA - 100
    Sony DRU-510A - Yellowtail Merlot
  3. how do you know it's the CPU? What are the symptoms exactly?

    It's unlikely your CPU would just spontaneously fry after months/years of faithful service, unless the HSF fell off, but if that was the case then it wouldn't work for half an hour. more like 5 seconds.

  4. i forgot to tell ya. the hsf was at the bottom of the case and the die was cracked
  5. Sound like a problem with the RAM. Make sure that pushed in all the way.

  6. If you use too big a battering ram, the die will crack, and make the hsf fall off. Personally, I like the ones with the gargoyle heads.
  7. bit odd that it'd just fall off like that (without being dropped or whatever)...

    Have one or more of the little plastic lugs come off the socket? if more than just the one in the middle are missing then it's new mobo time. Besides, it's always possible that the chip cooked something else while it was toasting and the mobo's dead anyway...

    I've only ever seen this happen as a result of Heavy-handed couriers. the bastards.

  9. So what kind of assistance are you seeking? You know the chip is completely toast from what you said in your second post... so you can't be asking if it's dead or of it's repairable...

  10. good damn point. what happened was that the clip went loose, the hsf fell on the ram knocking it out and making the die crack
