Cpu Warning

Discussion in 'AMD Thunderbird' started by Samantha Armstrong, Nov 27, 2003.

  1. Hi all im getting this warning from my motherboard constantly when my cpu is
    working hard. (WARNING CPU FAILURE) the problem is not my mother board as
    ive tryed other chips and there fine.

    I have a amd ath 2.6 333 fsb 512 ddr 2700 on a asus A7N8X Deluxe mother
    board ATI Radeon 9100 3d.

    If I run my cpu with just 266 fsb then the warning never occurs but then the
    max cpu spd i get is 2.0gig

    Oh and its not a heat problem as the highest cpu temp i`ve seen is 41
    Degrees c m-board = 27 degrees c.

    please help .............

    Try running the torture test of prime95.

    Also, you might find it useful to confirm the voltage the CPU is getting,
    using something like MBM5 -> the problem might be that vcore is a little
    low, upping it a notch or two might help.

    Running an athlon XP at 2.6gigs is one hell of an overclock, even the 3200+
    has a stock clock speed of 2.1gigs like getting the same performance level
    as a P4 clocked up to 4.5 gigs. and you're wondering why it's giving you a
    warning? lower the fsb a little or the multiplier it isn't made to run that
    fast without some serious water of nitrogen cooling.

  4. My cpu is an amd atlon 2600+ running at the correct speed sorry if other
    details were missleading.
