The second one died forever after I did this to it.



I was saying Hello to Trinity. (just 'cos it couldn't say, 'Not if I see you first', doesn't mean it didn't want to.)
My Llano has been a tank, even with a crappy AsRock 3+1 phase mobo. Ran 3.5GHz @ 1.5V for a long while then I delidded it and pushed it up to 3.8GHz 1.7V for fun, still chugs along just fine. biggrin.gif

as soon as it posted, turned off the PSU but would never boot into the desktop after that.

but did go out and get a E5300 that OCed like a champ with the Q6600 stock heat sink. biggrin.gif

The most recent CPU's I remember killing are an E6300 and Q6600. Both degraded so heavily after a year of heavy use that they weren't even stable underclocked. These are the few I remember the best. Don't remember the ones going back all the way to the P60 and 75 so haven't included them.

 

GPU's are a totally different story.The few I remember: 2x9800 Pro, 5700LE, 6600GT, 2x7600GT's, 2x 8800GTS 320's, etc. I mainly used to buy Nvidia, which is why I have a 9800GT and 9800GTX+ still here as reserve GPU's. Those cards are legendary. There are others going back all the way to the TNT 2 Ultra but that's so long ago I can't remember them that clearly.

Cracked the die on a 939 Winchester running it naked under a bracket modded XP90, and rotted the SMDs on a 3770k from not insulating under the IHS or coating them to protect them. The 3770k ran for about 2-3 weeks longer but only in single channel RAM mode after soaking in vinegar, cleaning it, and jumping the mount points for the missing resistors with pencil lead.

The component your power supply is powering isn't relevant here. What is relevant through, is the alarmingly poor quality of your power supply. If it supplies enough unregulated current to set components a blaze without automatically turning off, there is a serious problem. If you're still using said unit, I'd highly recommend replacement.

I killed one cpu that I can recall. It was a friends who decided to install his own aftermarket cooler about 17 years or so ago. He used thermal adhesive and not thermal paste and glued the heatsink to the IHS then asked me to come over and take a look at it a few weeks later to see why his temps were not doing so well. I tore that poor AMD right out of the socket and bent about 1/3 the pins and lost about 10.

Out of curiosity, what cooler was on there? AMD sockets disengage the pins once the lever is up. Some coolers (like the OCZ Vendetta) may offer enough clearance to get to that lever, otherwise a twisting motion is advised.

All this was done in a climate controlled room with multiple fans on the motherboard to combat temp increase.

Returned the Biostart board to where I got it from and got a gigabyte 990FX. Found a gentleman selling a used Phenom II 955 BE for dirt cheap and picked that up too. Ran that bad boy @ 4.0Ghz for 3 years before selling.

How was the Vdroop on that board?

What was cooling like on those chips? I've had Llanos that high on stock cooling (for GPU benching) and they didn't complain.

yes when I upgraded to Athlon XP 1800+, I put my old Duron 700MHz system on the mobo box and powered it up without a cpu cooler just to see what happens devil.gif
post #50 of 97
I did a suicide run at 5.0 GHz on my 3770K. It hurt the overclocking potential and I couldn't get it over 3.9 GHz after that. The 3770K still runs to this day in my friend's PC, working just fine.

I did kill a 3930K, though. Three years of running BOINC at 4.5 GHz and the motherboard (I assume the VRMs) fried. So I put it in a new board and it ran (Prime95 for 5 minutes and hours of Diablo II), then rebooted with XMP and suddenly it was dead headscratch.gif.
