Thread: One could call me a murder, I've killed so many computers. Here's my latest victim.

    Default One could call me a murder, I've killed so many computers. Here's my latest victim.

    I just built the best CPU water cooler in the world this week. I was like "My cooler will stike fear into the heart of boiling transistors everywhere!" So I clamped it up to my Brand New P4 3.8Ghz with 1Mb of cache ON DIE! I think it was on die, anyway. My goal? 4.5Ghz solid. Booted into CMOS, set the multiplier higher, bit by bit. 4.0Ghz, yes! 4.2Ghz, yes! 4.4Ghz, YES!!! I was like "My CPU will murder you with the sheer power of it's presence!" I set the multiplier to the next setting, and the puter says: Chumm chumm chumm! Shreeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!!

    What the hell just happened!? I says. I have never heard a puter make that sound. It was ungodly. I try to boot up my computer. No good. I crack it open and set the jumpers to restore defaults. No good. I rip out the battery for 24 hours, no good. I pull the cpu and stick it into one of my other motherboards. No good. I think "Dammit, its dead!" But I was too stubborn to give up. I tried another CPU in the motherboard I was overclocking on and everything is good.

    So it has to be the CPU. I pull out the 50 pound oscilliscope and start testing the pins, one by one. According to my calculations, all the transistors are still good and the cpu should be working.

    So whats the deal? Is it possible for a CPU to get "stuck" at a certain operating frequency? I called Intel, but they said they can't help since i voided the warrenty by overclocking. Lol. Can anyone help?

    Well once you hit a certain voltage you may fry some of the components inside the CPU. But motherboards usualy or should protect against reaching those levels. Why did you want to set it that high anyway, no one "NEEDS" 4.4GHz anyway. And just because the oscilliscope says it is ok doesent mean that it is. The CPU is a little more complicated than that.

    Wesley, your post in this thread and your posts in others shows so many signs of a lack of intelligence, knowledge, wisdom in you that I simply can't even bother to correct the numerous mistakes in this one... Normally I'd help with this type of thing, but I can't for the life of me see a reason to, while there are quite a few reasons not too.

    Buy a new processor and Chuck the old one is all I am going to say after reading all the other stupid things you have done. And for god sakes, Know what the hell you are doing and the limits as well.

    "Sir, put your hands up in the air and back away from the computer slowly.
    Please consult a professional for some help."

    While mistakes do happen, a quick look at your posts, and it's frickin' obvious you really don't know what the hell you're doing. Most people learn from their mistakes, but, for some reason, this ain't happening with you. I'm not trying to be mean, but there's some serious user error here.
    Either educate yourself properly on what to do and what not to do with computers, or leave this stuff in the hands of a more capable person than yourself, until a time comes where you don't have a curse on you.
