Yeah these idiots overclock an AMD Duron processor, then pull the cooling fan off. Pretty energetic reaction!

Yeah, they wouldn't be able to get it anywhere near 3.8Ghz in the first place. Anyone that tells you that a p3 Celeron will is full of shit.

Thats some hellacious overlocking without a fan running. Did I see right, was there a hole in the table too?

flamebait taken

I have a socket478 P4 3.2 overclocked to 3.920 Ghz, running solid for about a year now.

Apples to apples. It depends on what the Duron he was running was. It was older than your P4, for sure.

If you click on more videos, they toast an Intel P4 aswell.

Makes me kinda cringe..I just dropped some cash on a new processor

Yup. Makes me wonder what kind of speed they could have gotten using liquid cooling or Nitrogen cooling.

Nope, P4s will throttle down and won't burn out.

Not when you overclock them to hell and take the heatsink off.the sensors don't update NEARLY fast enough to combat the speed at which the chip would heat up.

Just in case anybody was thinking I made that up:

www.metacafe.com/item26293/GMAME



that IS NOT OVERCLOCKED! (trust me a p4 Oc'd to all hell will die without a HeatSink, not that you would want to OC.......ever hear of suddon intel death syndrome?)

btw.......athlon64s and newer gen Athlons will shut off just fine at stock speeds......The video is bs anyways....look at how they SMOTHER the chip with thermal paste (anyone who knows how to put thermal paste on(which THG doesn't know how to do, which is why I have zero respect at all for their technical knowldge) knows not to do that, it only acts as an insulator)...not to mention they got the paste all over the bridges and all those other components on the chip WHICH IS A VERY BAD THING....especially if the paste is electircally conducting. Why is the P3 devoid of thermal paste???

Perhaps the heatsink itself had some thermal tape on it. As for having thermal paste smeared everywhere, I agree that it's a bad thing. Use as little as possible.

Me = Intel fan, all the way.

*Edit* Upon watching them remove the heatsink from the P3, it looks like there is an outline of where some paste was pushed away from a processor. Looks as if it was previously installed on a Xeon, Socket-478 or LGA-775 sized processor.

Not being a CPU expert and all, I still have to throw the bullshit flag on the thing EXPLODING. And blowing a whole through the table? Yeah, I'll believe that when me shit turns purple and smells like rainbow sherbet.

No way that 4 volts (and the screen said it) could be applied to anything electronic to produce that sort of reaction. Burn, yes. Explode? No way.

Were you OC like mad and remove the HSF? Im not saying it would blow up, but definantly would show mor damage than that top one in your stack.
Link Posted: 12/19/2005 12:03:49 AM EDT
Well I've had some crispy ones, others were less noticeable. I forget where the one pic I have is, but there was some caked on neoprene insulation from a peltier/watercooling setup I had going. That was nasty and smelled horrendous. Most were because of too much voltage or an improperly mounted piece of cooling. Mind you it's not like they all died the first time I put the cooling on. All except my first happened only after putting the processors through hell :D

As for the "taking the HSF off while the CPU is running" bit. No I haven't done that. But the first CPU I fried when I was building my first computer, it was a 1.2ghz Tbird and I *RESTED* an aluminum orb heatsink on the cpu. Rested, not attached. And that thing poofed a bit of smoke lol

Have I ever had one aspldoe like that? No. And quite honestly I just don't see how anything like that could happen.. for it to blow through the bottom of the motherboard.

Silicon is tough stuff. Especially in layers as in PCB and processors.

What the fuck are you doing? With that many failures I hope that you've build 100+ systems. I've never roasted a chip.
