I kinda agree with one poster.. Why not actually grow up and save the cash yourself for it.. I mean your going to college to what, go back home and leech MORE off your parents? Get a job and save like every other responsible adult in the real world.

(OK, the responsible adult thing is going way overboard as we ALL know there are many, so-called `Adults` who aren't what they should nor be in the real world but honestly.. Do you want to be one of those people that I talk about in subtext's negatively about? Get a job)

BTW this is coming from a guy who wasn't coddled nor spoiled as a kid and worked on a farm since the age of 11. Grow a sac.

haha, funny thing is mine isn't that far off that high temp they got WITH the heatsink

I have learned a lot about how to destroy a CPU nobody seems to know how to tell if its legitimately close to death though? Anyone have any suggestions along that line?

I have a job... the money from that is going towards paying for college myself without their help, and to my car payments which i need to start soon.

I wasn't coddled either, I've had a job since I was allowed by law to have one. If I can find a way that my parents will help me out since they have been nice and bought me this computer 4.5 years ago maybe they'll be nice and buy me a new one if this is gonna die.

Most people have mis-understood what I'm asking as me looking for a way to destroy my CPU or trick someone... I'm just looking to see if someone knows how to tell if its close to dying on me, so I can start planning before the spring semester starts and I need a comp for my senior thesis and such...

Tell them smoke comes out the back...I doubt they would want you to turn it on after hearing that.

OR you could refer them to this thread

put in a new HDD, without windows installed. obviously, it wont boot. then you already have the drive for your new system, so its technically free, without risking damaged hardware.
