Dont let your CPU go over 70c! - Page 2

post #11 of 23
mean time for failure is supposed to be about 10 years. In order to get that out of a CPU, you need to keep the temps down.

Do you really want to own a 10 year old compouter? I don't. Hmmm... Lets see... that would mean I'd be about due to replace my Pentium 90 PC right about now. No thanks I can't see owning a PC for more than 3 years or so at the very most.

I am a computer tech, and you would not belive how many 10 year old computers I come across. I think a good time to upgrade for most people is every 4 years. For people like us/gamers, I think 2-3 years is more realistic.

Honestly guys 70C is nothing for a Northwood, it should not cause any damage at all to it

75C is the rated Thermal spec for a Northwood of this type, as long as it stays below that you should have no problems.
Even with TM1 disabled it should have caused no damage to the processor, I would look at some other part of the PC that is the problem.
If this CPU has indeed failed at this temperature I would take it back as it can't even run within its thermal specifications.

Well, all I know is that the computer was running fine, then the pump died and the CPU get VERY hot (it might have gone over 70c, I dont konw), and now it wont run at stock. If you have any other thoughts as to what could cause the problem, please tell me.

Ripping the cord out of the wall or even complete crashes can corrupt your operating system. Ask any Beta tester lol

Ya, your right, lol. It’s never been a problem for me, but my boss did it once by accident and cost a client over $1000!

Yep, I have crashed Windows XP due to overclocking quite a few times. About a year ago, I had to do a complete re-install because it completely hosed the registry when it crashed. It was bad luck, but nonetheless I couldn't recover the OS even from the recovery console.

I thought I had fried something also.. Reinstall of XP and back to normal!

I thought of that, so I stuck in another hard drive with another OS on it and it still locked up. It has locked up in the Windows XP instalation program AND in the BIOS!
