    Hello All,

    I just kicked my FSB up to 185 (x11.5) to get 2167Hmz...
    EZT4 is telling me that the CPU tempt i sabout 72C under full load.
    Is it just me or is this a bit high?
    Dram = 370Mhz/2.6v
    AGP= 74Mhz/1.6v
    PCI = 37Mhz
    CPU = 1.932v

    How likely is it that i will cook the chip at this rate? was hoping to hit
    200+ FSB with a lower multiplier....

    advice is welcome.

    AMD data sheet specifies 85° C.
    It also likes 1.65V core voltage.

    well... I got my answer.

    it cooked at 73C. Likw a minute after i posted the first message in this
    thread.... it just stopped. Like someone pulled the plug.

    I (was) running this chip on a g7-VAX-A. let it cool down, cleared the cmos
    (had to pull the battery).

    The core voltage was either set to auto or + 7.5 % and I was just telling
    you what it was reporting.

    Looks lik too much voltage for 5 minutes killed it. it wont respond at all.
    i have a dead 2000XP, and the 2600 is exhibiting the same behavior. So, I am
    guessing its dead.

    Intel chips seem much more forgiving

    Of course what you have to remember is: Was that 73C using the On-Die heat
    sensor (would probably have been ok) or 73C using the in socket heatsensor
    (my guess this is why it fried).

    Not Quite...

    i bought another chip (2500+).. .it wont work either.

    I am going to try anothe PS... if that doesnt do it... then its actually the
    board that cooked.

    And if that is the case... im buying an Asus.

    I put a POS 300W PS in there and the system started up. The one that
    apparently died was supposed to be descent... " real pc power ", (its black, with an adujstable speed fan)...

    I guess it was what tanked.

    Im back in action.. Have to return the 2500 though, but they are closed
    tomorrow. 20 days left on the OEM...
