The past weeks, ive seen maaaany 300A's dying all over the world!!!!
Xriz have lost 3 cellys
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

You know that deal from the movie BLADERUNNER?

It goes something like, a candle that burns twice as bright last half as long.

Intel put a time limit just like those workers in Bladerunner.

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

Check the things it can't be first. It shortens the list.

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!
