Unfreakin believable! here i am with my new 1.3ghz (btw the ayhja is unlocked. it was set to 700 but i changed to 1.3, the speed of the chip is 1.33 (266) chip. Running smoothly when all of a sudden the [-peep-] fan dies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i just got it today and the [-peep-] fan died! And here i try to turn it off asap but GODDAMN MOTHERFUCKEN WINDOWS WOULDN"T LET ME COS I WAS COPYING A FILE U GODDAMN MOTHER [-peep-] MICRO PEICES OF [-peep-]!

I turn it off and there is a [-peep-] 4 second delay and mmm i smell a nice smell of burning electronics yummy.... *SCREAMS* thats it i'm all intel with my next upgrade i swear to god! this mother [-peep-] better work. I have a global win heatsink i can use. thermaltake is [-peep-] crap guys don't buy their [-peep-]!

unbeliavable.. the sad thing is abit was suppose to automaticly shut off the computer incase the fan dies... ya right! bullsh'it!

right now the Dragon Orb3 is sitting on my power supply doing jack [-peep-]!

as AOL says it best "goodbye" only to AMD and thermalshit however.

Have fun!

Did ya plug into the Motherboard with the dragon ?
Not advised as thermaltake would say, would fry that A7M266 in seconds as it says in most literature.
It is a 7000rpm fan for fu%#s sake, yer cant plug into mb 3 pin header, if ya did its yer own fault! <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by scotty3303 on 08/10/01 11:52 PM.</EM></FONT></P>

try to return the chip and blame it on the heatsink or go to the place that you got the heat sink form and see if they can get you a new chip

Well sorry I mentioned it, but get yer facts first. I have a dragon 3 and it definately is grand on top of my 1.4g!
August 10, 2001 6:10:50 PM

not for me cos it died lol!

i'm better now the cpu still works but i got an RMA number and i do plan on returning it.

I got my global win working and it's running at 1.3ghz.., temp is pretty high 51 degrees celcious... *shakes head* so much for overclocking eh!

Have fun!
August 10, 2001 6:35:46 PM

ok im all good now i'm cool... i got an rma number and i am taking it back and getting newones. that sucks! oh well...
the cpu still worked but there is no way in hell i'm taking the chance. it's going back... i hate latency defects...

and my next big upgrade will be intel. Hoefully Intel by then will have there act straitend out!

Have fun!

Dude you just made my day!!!

Glad to hear your switching to Intel.

Stick to workin code.
August 10, 2001 6:52:28 PM

well i can't right now lol... i already bought DDR RAM and a AMD DDR board ... *shrugs* i was thinking of intel but i already bought the RAM when i was thinking of intel. lol
i probably won't upgrade for 2 years.. or until next year.. lol.. i seem to upgrade every year.. heh *shrugs*
now amd isn't crap it just burns up when your fan dies lol.. acutally it is still working and i have it now surprisingly @ 1300mhz too.. but i smelled burnt electronics and that is never good...

i noticed u posted a 3dmark post... i jumped from 4768 to 5600 with the cpu upgrade in 3dmark2000v1.1 1000 point jump is pretty huge isn't it? I have an ATI AIW Radeon.. 5600 i think is pretty good for this card.

thats all i gotta say is that i have a pentium3 800 on my laptop and it gets prettty hot but it doesn't smoke! lol ...

*sigh* why couldn't amd put a thermal diode on the chip in the first place? cheap bastards lol ...

I just wanted to say that I love my Thermaltake K-6.....and if the fan stopped working how is that the heatsinks fault?

Either way I'm glad you get to return the CPU! relief.

LOL, ROTFLMAO!!! hahaha :smile:

It's usaully the most vocal defenders of the AMD burnt offerings that get burnt. why oh, why do ppl not listen to reason?

now the next burnt offering you'll buy is a duron LOL! and you;ll have to check on that every hour on the hour like a newborn.

August 10, 2001 7:25:58 PM

it is becuase the fan came with the heatsink

Ok, you asked for it was the thread! Oh who was gloating, who was all knowledgable one, the oh everyone get this board! man, just firk the firk up.

Yer a ferkin smart ass and now ya learnt.
Nothing wrong with yer fan or cpu, just firked up buddy. Good luck with it heh.

BTW guess who you pissed off with ya firkin crap in yer infancy.
August 10, 2001 7:55:00 PM

duron? i already have a duron? why would i downgrade? i don't get you at all .... anyway the cpu still works actually considering it got burnt! eitherway i'm taking it back... never take a chance because latency defects are not fun because by then you warranty has expired.. doh

Have fun!
August 10, 2001 7:55:19 PM

"Nothing wrong with yer fan or cpu, just firked up buddy. Good luck with it heh."

riiight thats why the blue stuff on the cpu has oozed off, i smelled burnt electronics which means the cpu got burnt, and the heatsink and fan doesn't work.

August 10, 2001 7:58:38 PM

it was doing a fine job but then the fan just died just like that? infact check this out for my duron 700 temps...

Duron 700 with coolermaster
Idle: 46C
Heavy load: 51C

Duron 700 with dragon orb 3+
Idle: 35C!
heavy load: 36C!
After benchmarking for 20 minutes 39C and it didn't go any higher then that. not bad... went down like 11 degrees celsious. the fan is super loud though! *shrugs*

Have fun!

Wait till I get vocal boy! but lol, shite happens. I would say as I have seen how good you are with help with AMD, infact I have seen your help and it makes me think well maybe this guy knows summin, could have an AMD himself dare I say that.

August 10, 2001 8:13:52 PM

Actually, the burnt smell could have been the fan.

Hey, you're in luck! They just announced that if you pay $10,000 a year, they'll give you a new motherboard free ever two months when they change the sockets.

Yeah, I'm exaggerating, and Intel makes good stuff.

Anyhow, I wonder if FUGGER and AmdMeltdown noticed that the CPU still works. That disproves all of the stuff that they say about AMDs burning up as soon as the fan stops.

thats what i was thinking too ... it may have been maybe.. but on the chip itself you know that shiny blue stuff on the core? well some of that has oozed off and has spreaded. not good ... so to play it safe i'm gonna take it back. ya know? i think it is overheating too because at 1.3ghz the temp is like 52 degrees celsious and may have gottin higher because my computer froze up.. so the chip is probably damaged and i won't be able to overclock infact i have to downclock. It's at 1ghz right now .. at 1.3 it gets a bit hot!

Have fun!
August 10, 2001 8:51:45 PM

lol!

ya i could have swore the chip would have been dead.. because the blue die has oozed off practicly.. it is damaged i can tell but it does still work. The fan however is shot to sh!t doesn't work period. What sucks is that abits motherboard was suppose to shut down the computer asap when the fan dies.. it didn't do that..so abit is to blame since the technology they incorporated doesn't work and they assumed it would. ya know?



Have fun!
August 10, 2001 8:56:35 PM

The abit board will ONLY SHUT THE CPU DOWN IF THE FAN IS PLUGGED INTO THE MOTHERBOARD.

Hard lesson to learn, hope you learned it well...ps, your chip isnt damaged, those things tend to work, or not. It runs a little hot at 1.3 because youre using a different heatsink.

by plugging the uber fan into the mobos 3 pin header, you probably burnt it out.
By plugging the uber fan into the powersupply(to avoid being a dumbass and burning your fan header out)
You negtated abits emergency fan shut off protection system.

Which path of destruction did you take young jedi?

u have an additude! why don't you shuv it up your ass! instead of being a dickhead you could have said "thermaltake advises to plug the heatsink and fan in the 4 pin powersuuply."! btw if thermaltake wanted you to do that they would have had just the 4 pin not the 3 pin in the first place! it's there fault for having the 3 pin there! most motherboards you place it in the 3pin even on the box it says 3pin power connector! so it's not my fualt thermaltake are a bunch of retards to not even include a warning on the box.

"warning plugging the 3pin into the motherboard will fry the fan" would that make sense at all to you? it's their fault for not making it a 4pin only connector! and btw! it's a 3pin to 4pin convertor that came with the heatsink! so stick that up your ass! i didn't have a 3pin and a 4pin connected at the same time retard... it's a convertor!

some of you people have some serious [-peep-] additudes! grow up!!!!!!

I had thermaltake's chrome orb and that was one of the fcking crappiest coolers I have ever seen! Fancy looking, pretty expensive, noisy and less effective than $5 no-name standart cooler! Replacing chrome orb with 2 times cheaper coolermaster, my duron 700 temp dropped from 52C to 43C (under full load by ASUS probe). I can't imagine how could chrome orb cool 1Ghz athlon (it's rated up to that) when it's already a bit too hot with low-end duron...

Now I think its YOUR fault.
Just because a fan died on u doesn't mean u switch companies, if u do its a downgrade@ the moment.
Considering amd is lesss expensive and performs just as good or not better amd all the way.

August 10, 2001 10:32:51 PM

belieave it or not this thing did it's job... my duron 700 was at 52C i went and put on the dragon orb3 and drobbed to 34 immeditly and rose a little to 35, under heavy load it wnet up to 36 and under extreme load up to 39 and didn't budge and in the bios it actually started to go down.. so it did it's job.. evne though it's loud as hell.

is that the 80 dollar heatsink and fan!? lol no way i'm paying that much for a fan lol. i paid 30 bucks for this one. ya it died but oh well [-peep-] happens.

explain how a fan dieing is my fault?

August 10, 2001 10:57:24 PM

Im gonna state this calmly.

I was not saying that it was a deffinate fact your fan burnt out the header on your mobo. I was making reference to the fact you got mad at abit for its fan auto shut off feature not working, I told you that you had to have the fan plugged into the mobo for that function to work, but you said it WAS in the mobo, earlier on in the thread you said that it WASNT in the mobo, when someone ELSE made the accusation you burnt your fan header. THE POINT OF MY POST, WAS TO DETERMINE(with a slight bit of humor) WHERE YOU HAD IN FACT PUT YOUR FAN.

"nd btw! it's a 3pin to 4pin convertor that came with the heatsink! so stick that up your ass! i didn't have a 3pin and a 4pin connected at the same time retard... it's a convertor!"

I never said you had both a 3pin and a 4 pin connected at once. I was making note of the fact you have 2 different stories as to which connector you are using. If your delta was plugged into the mobo, I am not sure if it would have burnt out or not, but every hsf guide ive ever read states that a delta draws a hell of a lot of juice, and its alwayes best to put that sucker on a main line.
If you did that, having the delta on the main line, then stfu about abits feature, it not working is YOUR FAULT.

PS: Ditching a good product because of a failure of another component is stupid, ooops the ram I odered is bad, im going intel next time. You knew heat is an issue, it isnt like they hid the lack of thermal protection from you, so dont whine.

PPS: NEXT TIME YOU ARE WORKING WITH AN ATHLON AND YOU HEAR THE HSF DIE, DAMNIT BOY PULL THE POWER CORD STAT, DONT DICK AROUND WITH WINDOWS SHUTDOWN, OR EVEN THE POWER BUTTON, PULL THE FRIGGEN CORD, AND THERE SHOULD NEVER BE A BURNT CORE DUE TO FAN STOPAGE.

My Delta on my Alpha 6035 cooler is turning 7235rpms as I type this and it is plugged into my 3pin header on my motherboard. Not a problem here. Been over 6 months now with that cooler being runned from the motherboard header. IWILL KK266. Not sure what some people are talking about on burning up the fan header.

Redundancy is the key to efficiently cooling your chip. I always make sure I install a large fan 60mm~80mm on the back of the system complementing the HSF. That way when things do go south you at most have to replace a $5 fan. In any overcooked system you should have 2+ fans more than your HSV. The more copper/silver/gold you have on your chip the less chance you have of overheating. With my combination of airflow and Swiftech 462 heat sink, a cpu fan is not 100% necessary. I still keep a temp monitor in my tray and definitely run software like CPUCool to keep things in check.

good idea ...

I do have a 80mm fan in the back and the H&F was copper based. I looked at the chip though and some of the blue coding has melted and i know for a fact it wasn't like that before.

problem is though is that my other case doesn't have a fan slot by the cpu... err ... instead there are two slots above the power supply and 1 slot for a fan in the front. total of 3 fans. maybe i can force fit a fan by the cpu.. *shrugs*

alrighty thanks for your post!

Have fun!
