I found out the bloody pump's plug had fallen out (!!) and it had no cooling at all - would this extreme temperature for about 1 and a half minutes be dangerous?
Any updates? Is the cpu still good?

well, i would, but i can't find such a feature in my BIOS...

i think it has an inbuilt one, though, as it sat at 89, and then just about 5 secs after it hit 90 it went off....

Although with 112 degrees on the core, i am lucky i have any water LEFT!

She was working fine this morning (@ school atm) - overclocked this morning (dropped the multi, raised the FSB, kept the same clock but raised the ram, as my mobo has no setting above DDR400, raising the FSB was the only way of keeping it working at the right speed. Actually, just realised it goes higher and that my ram could go to DDR600, cant wait to try it!)

/me wants an Opteron even more now though!
