    A friend of mine lost one 300A
    LordGumby lost his 300A
    An neighboor has lost his 2. 300A on 4 weeks

    Are the old cellys getting too old??????
    Maybe Intel programmed them to dye now, se we go buying Celeron2 or P3... ?

    It's all part of sIntel's master plan. They put a bug or two in the medocino celeron's that is designed to kick in when the new Celerons come out

    Either that or the old celery's felt suicidel after they saw there owners drouling over the spec's of the new copper celeron's

    Gee, do ya think that all that overclocking might be responsible?

    ------------------
    Check the things it can't be first. It shortens the list.
    You can talk about "that" here

    Remember that guy your mom warned you about? I beat the snot outta him.

    What you are seeing is the prolonged effect of elctromigration. It has been brought on by about a year's worth of operation of some of these chips under Vcore settings that are WELL outside of their specified safe range. It shouldn't really come as any surprise to anyone. After all, the potential risks and consequences were known to those who have opted to overclock way back there.

    I wouldn't expect the average O/C'ed celeron (2.1 - 2.2 Vcore) to ever fall victim to such a premature death- at least not until the next likely upgrade takes place, which probably isn't too far into the future for most of these people.

    well jeffy, you contridict yourself again. u say ur gonna OC then you say you don't WTF!!! if you don't want to don't rain on our parades when we OC. it is up to us 100% if we want to.

    and as for the electromigratation thingy. it does happen but takes time. I think more likely these died from other factors!
