Damn XP1900!

I cracked my core! It's just a little chip, but it makes it so I can't OC anymore... And it runs really hot. Is there any way to fix this?

About the image: First, sorry about the lighting! The chip is in the upper-left of the core, and its TINY.

Yeah. I'm buying a XP1600+ and going to OC it to like 1.8GHz w/ air cooling, and I want to try for 2GHz once I get me water cooler

That'd be really impressive if/when you get it to 1.8. What are the specs of this air cooling system? I'm touching 1.65 with my 1600+...

Do you know the specs of his cooling and other hardware to take that? That's really good. I wish I could get there...

He has a Cooler Master HHC-001 on it (7volts, not 12) and 2 Panaflo 'L' fans in front, 2 in back, 2 on top, and a Entermax PS. He is using that new EPoX motherboard - Sry, I can't remember the type, but it is like the latest.

It's a great OC speed, and I hope that I can get that high with the EPoX mb and a XP1600 (My new proc, b/c this one cracked )

remember not all chips are born equel, 1.82 ghz out of an XP 1600 is amazing! dont expect to get that high, but by all means try for it! i learned the hard way that expecting something to overclock usually means it wont, my two XP1800's are a case in point.

however it goes, keep us posted ! good luck for your quest for the 2ghz barrier! I myself am going to attemt it with a 1gig tbird of all things! probably wont manage it, but worth a try!

I feel sorry for you man. I had the exact same problem with my XP2100+ about 3 weeks ago. Thanks god, i had a warranty on that so all i did was took it back and exchange it for a brand new one.

Yeah... I have a 3 year warranty, but it doesn't cover over clocked or unlocked chips... And the in-store warranty is only like 15 days long and I have had the chip for 2+ months…

What would the recommendation for a new chip be? A XP1600, or a XP1800? Or something else? I am looking at not spending over $125 (Including S&H)… Ideas?
