    C2 533@900 1.85v/1.9v, is this gonna kill my chip?

    Title says it all, just cranked the voltage up to 1.85 (though my mobo is a bit on the harsh side, adds +0.05v usually). And I am at 900mhz, the benchmarks are great, but will my chip fry in about a week?

    Well i thought i'd test its stability, crashed after 5 mins of half-life, i think i'll stick to 800mhz. 900 is too much for a 533 i think.

    Or you could add more cooling, what are you using right now for cooling?

    Please don't provoke the poor people..........
    Their website said "Requires Linux Distrubution based on kernel 2.4.2 or better," so I went and installed FreeBSD.

    Alpha pep66 on an IWill slotket II with thermal goop. At 800mhz 1.6v/1.65v my system temp is about 34 from cold boot and rises to just above 40 under high load. I dont have a cpu diode installed atm (coz the bx6 rev2 has its diode removed) and the temp sensing cable i have lost its stickiness, and i dont have time to fix it back in there. But temp isnt a problem at this speed i expect,isnt 1.9v a too high for a coppermine even with pretty good cooling?
