    Tim, the only way it's worth it to me is trading for a D0 that you know clocks good. For example mine with 1.25v can do 4.3 GHz stable. But lot of the new D0's are not the greatest clockers. So unless you are buying one you know will clock very good, even though there will be an improvement, I don't think it's worth it.

    Not been my week for hardware. :shadedshu Just lost a 2nd motherboard today. Im down to 2 rigs for awhile. Got a Gigabyte and now a MSI board going for RMA. I think the MSI board took my CPU with it also. :banghead:

    I tried to shut it down because I new something was odd. It was making a very slight "buzzing" noise, but I didnt really hear it right away because of all the fans I have running. Then I caught out the corner of my eye a small light like an auto fuse blowing. I ran across the room to try and grab the power cord, but it was to late, she shut down. :( Now the Kuma I had in it at the time wont power up in any mobo. :cry:
    Im going to miss that little Kuma core. I could throw it on any board at anytime and it would boot the 1st try. And now I look outside and its freaking snowing. Nice. :ohwell:

    Well, I got the RMA from MSI. It will ship tomorrow with the Gigabyte board. :(
    Good news comes from all this.... My Kuma is alive. :D The gentleman that taught me pretty much everything I know pertaining to computers always told me " if a CPU dont boot, put it in the freezer". Of coarse I didnt really believe him, he was full of shit 1/2 the time anyway. Well I did it after all these years and sure as shit, it fired up after warming to room temp. Seems to be fine as of right now. Riddle me that shizzat! :wtf:

    Never heard of that trick.
    Glad to hear it works:toast:
    Now I must remember that graphics cards go in oven and CPU's go in freezer:laugh:
    Just one question, what do I put in the washing machine?

    The motherboard goes in the washer. :laugh:

    Ive seen people bring back HDD's by freezing them, but this was a first for me on the CPU thing. I was desperate and was just getting ready to throw it out with the nights garbage, it popped in my mind. So what the hell. Tried it.
    Im going to crunch my C2D laptop while the board issue is being straitened out. It will help some.

    I don't have pics... don't even have a camera anymore. I do, at least it's supposed to be mine, but my mother "borrowed" it and never gave it back.

    camera was pretty shitty anyway :/

    Remember. You have to lap it till you see the chip itself. Then when you get to the center you pour water on it to wet sand it down. Then you dunk it into a jar of honey before putting it in your rig. :laugh:
