I have to agree with val. There seem to be a small few that have some above average overclocks but most have trouble from what I have seen.



That sucks another 4000 went down the drain. How can one prevent the same thing from happening to them? I am on a UPC, is that better protection than a surge protector?

Is your new 4000 working better for you? I am thinking about getting a 4000. I will move my 3700 down to another computer.

I've been fairly happy with my CABGE as well. I guess we're the lucky minority

Edge, my stock benches went up a bit going from a 3700 to a 4000+ OCing I've just begun to push it. My understanding is that I can get close to 3 Ghz on air and slightly higher on water. It will be interesting to see.

A little FYI. for some reason I'm in a power quadthat browns and blacks out far to frequent. I have a Belkin 800w and never had a CPU crapolla, yet.
BTW, A battery BU will stabilize the incomming power, very good thing indeed

duke, I've been considering a ups but to be honest other than the power failure/cpu coincidence from the second failure, I can't explain the first. Also, I've upgraded my current rig numerous times in the last year without any problems. I'm concerned it might be something else but the system is rock solid now (and was before each cpu fried). I've monitored my voltages, stress tested my cpu with S&M@ stress tester for hours. run all kinds of benches on all 3 cpu's without a single crash or lock up.

The first failure happened when I added a second defective 7800GT. It may have shorted something that led to the cpu's demise. The second cpu failed instantly after the power surge I mentioned while I was online playing a game. A charge could have come through my cable modem even though its also on a power bar.

I don't know. I guess I'll chalk it up to bad luck.

i just bought one of those 80 dollar monster cable surge protectors. it has $250,000 equipment coverage. its on a light switch and i can flicker the switch one and off and somehow it keeps the pc on and unharmed. its a magical thing. theyre hella expensive but well worth the investment.
