    Why do my CPU's keep dieing on me?

    i know :( this will be the first processor on the new PSU. so maybe my luck will change. i hope it will. I didn't have this many issues with the P4, which i used for just as long as i have been with AMD. it is just crazy. the First thing that happened to me i forgot to add earlier was i...

    Why do my CPU's keep dieing on me?

    no it will boot up, it will just not run stable at stock speeds. the ram tests 25 hours good with memtest, and i have tested each stick individually.

    Why do my CPU's keep dieing on me?

    thanks for all the replies. I am thinking it is just a string of bad luck. I use an anti-static wrist band when i am building, and i build on a tile floor while barefoot.

    Why do my CPU's keep dieing on me?

    Enermax was stable the whole time, rails were measured with a DMM and never fluctuated. OCZ is also very stable. Cooling used was a Zalman 7000CU, and recently i changed to an XP90 which cools about 4C bette than the Zalman. my X2 before it died was peaking at 35C while running dual Prime.

    Why do my CPU's keep dieing on me?

    i can only hope so, i am not sure how to test that? i use a CyberPower 1500AVR as my UPS and there are no warnings from the software or on the unit itself. it is supposed to detect wiring faults. I used the P4 in the same apartment for 1 year before i upgraded to A64, i have been using the...

    Why do my CPU's keep dieing on me?

    temps on cpus are always low, less than 45C, in most cases under 40C voltage to ballistix, 2.8v. voltage to TCCD was 2.7. i did try some UTT with the 3200+ and that i went up to 3.5, but that was the only cpu i did that with. the psu's i tried were a 485w Noisetaker, rails were rock solid...

    ASUS A8N32 SLI Deluxe questions

    i read on another site (can't remember where now) that someone added another card, and there temps didn't change any. if you have a 120mm fan blowing in on that area, i don't think it would make much difference

    ASUS A8N32 SLI Deluxe questions

    yes XP90, has kept my 3800X2 under 35C at full load on my DFI. i think the ASUS reports temps higher, so that kinda sucks, but oh well. the fan is a Thermaltake SilentCat, I bought both from frozencpu about a month ago. The fan comes white, which was ungawdly ugly, so i painted it orange...

    Thinking about Jumping on this LCD deal

    it could have been because I hooked it up to my craptop which is 4 years old and has 4mb of shared video memory.

    Is the 1801 better than the 1901?

    Is the 1801 better than the 1901?

    your pm box is full. Give dell a call and pick the options for customer service, product info, or place an order. I don't remember the specific menus though. If they have the 1901 in stock, you might as well wait for that if you don't game with it. otherwise cancel your order and get the...
