That poor Pentium made it all these years and you go ahead and do something like that. You should be ashamed of yourself. Are you gonna kill Grandma the next time you get bored?

How the heck did you do that? The warrenty may or may not cover it depending on how that was caused (assuming the warranty hasn't expired by now).

We will all mourn the passing of the intel chip....

Why do the other 2 pics look so much like AMD procs?... :eek:

kzzrn: err...it broke and i took a hammer and tried to fix it. hey...tom's logo is a hammer so i figured it would fix it...i guess i hit it a bit too hard.

chuck: no, its the same intel chip thats on the picutre

That's definitely an AMD chip. The pin layout shows. The P4 has many more pins and goes much more towards the center.

I guess I'm just old, but that's an original Pentium, not an AMD. I doubt this guy would intentionally kill anything newer.

He didn't say it was a Pentium 4. Also, if it were AMD Athlon, there would be some chips underneath it.

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.

Right right... sorry about that. But then again, IIRC the older Intel chips didn't have the thermal protection, so it wouldn't be all that hard to fry...

No d00d, LMAO, that's a Pentium 1 like in the first pic. I've taken a couple caps off these myself for educational demonstration (IE, look how big the circuits were back then).

The exposed core is NOT indicating the chip fried, but simply that the cover on the bottom was smashed.

Yeah, everyone saw those fried amd chips that the lab guyz played with. This one AIN'T melted...

C@lling it like I c it...

crashman's description is the closest...thats why i put a picture of the front that says "Intel Pentium" to make u guys realize that its a Pentium chip. i never said it was a p4 chip, HELL i would never break a p4 chip (maybe 5 years later i will). and yes, i smashed it with a hammer (which i clearly described in my third post) i thought a hammer might do the job, but i guess i smashed it too hard LOL. i think its not a good idea for tom to have a hammer as a logo since hammers arent good computer fixers (as a matter of fact, i dont think u would ever need a hammer)

How can you smash a chip with a hammer without the entire thing becoming a flat entity of goo and silicon?! :smile:

d00d, this was before the Flip Chip cores, the core was on the underside with the bottom mounted to the bottom of the package, and the top of the core covered by a plate that didn't even touch it. Originally the plate was Copper, those were easier to remove. Later covers were made from some kind of plastic-ceramic material.

"That's definitely an AMD chip. The pin layout shows. The P4 has many more pins and goes much more towards the center."

On one of the pictures, it says "Intel" and then "Pentium" on it. It looks more like a Socket 5 Pentium to me.

Intel stopped using the ceramic packaging process when they went with the Socklet 7 Pentium MMX's.

Do you have diarhea of the mouth? I'm talking about the core cover, not the pin grid. And the processor in the pic was not a Pentium MMX. So as a wise man once said "What's that got to do with the price of tea in China?".

Do you need your eyes checked? I never said it was a Pentium MMX.

Well I cant believe it, but you guys even made a thread like this a flame war.

yeah... i think its a bit sad people missread the post and got into a flaming war... when it was obvious to begin with that the destroyed cpu in question was an old penitum classic. end of story.

besides, what moron would destroy a modern (and expensive cpu)

Hey..........obviously u didnt read <A HREF="http://forumz.tomshardware.com/modules.php?name=Forums&..." target="_new"> THIS </A> thread...LoL

Poor people..

as for a flame war.......hah.....this is nothing compared to a lot of other threads....but indeed this was not supposed to turn into one.....anyone with some recolection of Socket 7 CPUS would know thats an Intel Pentium Classic processor......
