    So I had a P4 HT 3.0Ghz 4X512GB DDR Crunching for days at 100%.

    I had to reset for somthing, and the machine told me I was having memory errors. It still booted into windows, but locked up shortly after that.

    So I pulled 2 sticks, booted in a again, but a lock again. In the end it stopped coming on and I thought it had to be the ram. Yet I did have another PSU here, so I poped it in with it with the same thing. On off on off. Ram was dead totaly.

    Well yes the ram was dead but not the ONLY thing dead


    :nutkick: P3 3.0Ghz HT 478 CPU

    Take that:nutkick: and that :nutkick: and one more for the road:nutkick:

    It be dead as well lol So Cyber want me to send this ram back? IDK if I want to crunch a 1.4Ghz(the only 478 chip I have(I thought I had a 3Ghz celeron...Hmm) machine all tho it would make a good web box......IDK take that P4:nutkick: lol

    Are you sure the chip is dead? Maybe it's the board. I see people all the time saying that their chip died, but I have never killed a chip in the dozen or so years I've been building. And I have abused the crap out of a majority of them.

    I put a new chip in and it boots up. I stick the orignal chip in it does not turn on. I put the other chip in it boots.

    Taken out the battery, psu, reset cmos.

    I've killed chips(not stock..personaly..)BUT I have seen dead chips before it does happen from time to time. Being a Intel P4 I'm even more surprised, but not everything can hold up.

    LOL:laugh:
    so far only my rig is crunching, but not 24/7 so I'm fine!
    but I don't think Boinc will only kill Dells, maybe others such as eMachines:)
