    Sorry to hear that, Bro.

    This is why I've never done "extreme" OCing, I don't blame you about not wanting to do it anymore.

    Hope you get it straightened out though. Can you RMA it?

    Yeah I had the same thing happen to an AMD 2200+.

    I went from August of last year till January with only my laptop that isn't very good. The only thing I could play was Diablo II and I'll tell you I played the hell out of that game. Good thing there weren't many great games that came out the end of last year, it was bad enough going through withdrawl of COD, CS, and other games :duh:

    i highly doubt that.....

    as long as you don't suddenly get something to cold to quickly... or vice versa (from cold to warm to quickly)

    actually.. the cooler you run electronic components... the better the signal.. less deviation is stength .... less problems... even better preformance "at stock" if it's cold enough of course... you won't see a boost with -50*C... but at below -200*C.... you will

    Super Coducting... yeah baby... now only if we were able to super cool the entire mobo and parts.... and keep them that cool.... *goes to warp for lala land*
