My E5200 died today around 4PM. Don't ask how
.....

Of course it didn't involve a 1.62Vcore...........

I want to post in the trade section to try to sell just crap in general and buy just even a $40 Celeron single core. I'm ****ed.....

What happened?
LOL yeah what the hell? Amd 1.8ghz and ddr 512mb ram with an 8800gtx?

If I had a lga775 celery I'd trade it. I might still want your chip to add to my collection of decorative dead components. PM me when you're ready to part w/ it.

meh, thats low!
did it die from that? I have pushed 1.7v through most of my chips without them dying, I know some have even pushed 1.8v! how long did it run like this?

keep in mind the e5200 is a 45nm chip that's not supposed to have more than 1.36v for 24/7 and 1.4-1.45 for suicide runs. 1.6+ is lunacy.

I know, but I pushed 1.65-1.72v for benching with my E8500, E8600, Q9550 and Q9650! They never failed because of it! or degraded for that sake!

Just to let you know, it involved a certain water pump dying. I also only had a 80MM rad connected(is it possible for a pump to overheat?). Right now i'm on my sisters wonderful Emachines with a couple of my parts thrown in. When I connect my hard drive sometime soon, I will upload the devastating picture of my E5200 from CPU-Z.....

And im not parting with this chip. My Sckt478 P4 has always needed a dead friend.

When I did do the CPU Burn in(just one instance not two) it hit 71C instantly. Then I stopped it and went potty and came back and my pc was off. I'd have the E5200 for about two years and before the highest I have gone was 1.5. When it was at 3.4Ghz 24/7 it was at 1.475

Wow, lucky.

Perhaps it's like it was w/ the old northwoods. They'd just suddenly and randomly die after a certain voltage. Not all silicon is created equal.

Speaking of SNDS....

So essentially it overheated while severely overvolted?

You could say it was on air considering it was a slow water pump with only 5/8 Connectings and an 80MM radiator. It's a pump/waterblock combo. I still don't know if the pump or if the voltage killed it. I will test the pump now.

lol, actually I did it many times with all of them! So I guess most chips don't die with a ``little`` overvolt then!

Well the pump is working, and inspected my P45 UD3R. No damage at all. Just a dead dead dead chip. If I remember right it was idling at 46C on one core and 38C the other. CPU-Burned in for like 3 seconds and it hit 71C and 68C. Maybe heat and a high voltage killed it? I shoulda used my air cooler, damnit damnit damnit

You know, to think of it.... What if a background process was using 100% for like 10 seconds when I was gone and it fried it?....

The chip's vcore was pushed too high from the start IMO. Yours would be the first E5200 I seen that used (needed?) 1.45v+ for 3.4GHz. Did you know the cooling was failing while it was at that 1.6v+?
