A lesson to us all :P

hey guys, my m8 who had the overheating 1.2ghz tbird just blew the core in two! it wouldnt boot, so his dad took it to his office (he a computer type bloke, builds em for a living) unfortunately he cleaned off the AS2 i put there, and as he doesnt deal with AMD chips at all just whacked the heatsink on dry aparantly! blew as soon as he hit power! i would have thought that it would just crash a lot! ah well! he gets a 1.4 tbird now! and is moving to Epox motherboards

~"he's a computer type bloke, builds 'em for a living."

I don't wish to diss this gentleman. So I won't say that he's in the wrong profession. Or that he'd never get a job working for me. And I'd never say that I didn't know that 386SX and 486SX's are still being built. Nor would I ever add that summary... No, I'm much too polite!

well, he only handles intels usually! just stu is a proper gamer, so AMD is the best for that! stu's dad is good at his job, just doesnt know AMD like we do! the heatsink was on the wrong way 1st time i took a look at it, and the core got chipped! i cant see how anyone can chip a core! i havent yet, and im not being ultra careful, just sensible.

If he's a computer assembly type, then he's probably using heatsinks straight out the box. With only two exceptions, every heatsink I've ever seen has come with something resembling blu-tak stuck to the bottom as a primitive ht medium. We all strip it off because it's not that good. Possible that he didn't actually know that's what the blu-tak was there for and assumed that it was unnecessary. Live and learn, eh?

man, if you don't know that you should use thermal paste between a core and hsf, no ifs or buts you shouldn't be mucking about inside pcs. that's basic knowledge.

Hmm. It's only been fairly recent that P3's have actually needed thermal paste to cool them adequately. I was setting up a p3 667MHz the other week that had a (large) fanless heatsink and a bunch of chewing gum wedged to it. On the box it actually made an advertising issue out of "needs no messy paste".

It's only we overclockers who tend to push chips to heat outputs beyond what chewing gum will cope with. Basic knowledge for us is "that putty stuff's useless." Basic knowledge for box-shifters is "stock hs/fs work with stock chips. Bung one on and sell it."
