Hello, I think my cpu has died, (rip) or half died, i'll explane,
cpu, xp 1700 boxed set
mobo, gigabyte 7dxr
1 gig of ram
cpu always ran about 150f no matter what I did, including having a box fan blowing in on the system, said something to gigabyte on this in the beginning, they said it was ok.
as a next to last chance I changed the heatsink, temp dropped by 10 degrees, I also seen on the heatsink and the cpu the spot of contack was dry. V core was 1.75
system ran ok for about 2 years, then started getting deferent bsod's from xp pro,
took system down to bare bones, even tried a pci vid card, ran mem test 86, 14 times, no problems found, system did not lock up, but if I ran the CPU L1-L2 test the system would lock up, perhaps a software bug.
thinking the mobo could be a problem I replaced with another, asus A7V8X-X, and the cpu temp was 130 f, it still locks up when installing xp pro on a clean drive.
could this be a bad cpu from the start or a bad mobo or something like the chicken and the egg, suggestions?
thank you

try setting the front side bus down to 100 MHz (or lower) and the vcore to 1.70v and see if the problems continue. This will mean the CPU is running much slower and cooler.

It could also just be the 'dust-bunnies' that build up over time, in any HS/F.
Blow it out, with compressed, or 'canned air', if you can.
That 130F is too hot for reliable operation.

Here is my new PCChips M848A' "> v2.1, with a 1700+ @ 2411 MHz, and my trusty old PCChips M810L' "> v7.1A, with a Barton 2500+ @ over 3500+. Some of my fancy cars are on this pag
