i7 2600K died. what should i do? - Page 2  

post #11 of 88
aw man..you never should have told them that. kookoo.gif.hey..did you specify a certain voltage? tell them it was 1.37v whistle.gif
seriously..I'd call back..ask to speak to a manager or something
better yet..tell them a choke on your motherboard failed..and let juice get to the cpu

$300 and dies in a year? GRrr..mad.gifsozo.gif
I would NOT let that go..at all..

ring up again and just say it crapped out, do you have to give them a serial number or anything identifiable on the cpu to verify.

A high voltage will fry the chip even if it is for a few seconds. 1.9V+ could have done it.

thats the thing though. im not quite sure what i did.
I have never overclocked manually before.
A friend was giving me general knowledge about overclocking. all of the do's and don't.

I believe it was the cpu core voltage that got fuzzed around with.
I was taught that when increasing the core voltage based on the oc multiplier, only raise it by .005 until stable.

I believe i was increasing from 1.36 when it went bad. i thought i had done it correctly but i might have made i mistake

You changed the voltage by accident? Ouch... Well on the bright side, you won't make that mistake ever again...

Just out of curiosity, define 'died out'. What happens when you boot the machine up? (or attempt too)

And like others have said above... Call intel, and tell them the voltage was 1.37v when it 'died'...whistle.gif

Don't tell me you increased the voltage everytime per multiplier. doh.gif

What multiplier were you at? If you did that, the voltage could be at 1.7 or something

i believe the multiplier was at x45

Did you by any chance change between manual and offset mode? sub setting for the Core voltage.

this highly unlikely, but possible, someone with said compenents in rig would be a little more aware of the warning most bios display wen you are outside a range and there isn't a real easy way to accidently put 1.91 into the value slot. while .9 to 1.65 your pretty safe for a boot and crash, but after that you get grey depending on the cooling solution.

conclusion = always deny deny dney when it comes to rma lol

I have this image in my mind of the OP meaning to hit "+" and hitting "9" instead and sending 1.9v through the CPU
