When i moved house i didn't take my heatsinks off and when i set my a64 (neo2 + 3200 winnie) up it wouldn't post/boot... so i had to rma that cpu

 

Now last night i was moving my computer to the floor below to a party and then back upstairs... i think my beloved 2.92 Ghz 3500+ is DEAD!!!

 

:(

 

I've got 3 opterons on the way (i ordered one of them like 3 weeks ago now ffs) so hopefully that will make me feel better...

 

*cries*

I do a masters in computer games technology (that kinda takes a lot of money AWAY from me) and then i work part-time at an electronics shop (that doesn't sell any decent hardware)..

 

best thing at my shop is 3000+ winchesters... and they're CBBID :|

 

basically i spend most of my money on hardware... i haven't bought new clothes/shoes for a long time, i have a bike so i rarely have to pay to get around... and doing a masters means i don't have a lot of time to go out drinking or w/e...

 

also i'm about $50k in debt in loans lol

after about 30 times of trying to get it to boot, it booted in my neo2 board...

 

i don't know if it's injured or ok now... i'm gonna set up a new install of xp for my neo2 rig and hopefully it'll be ok again

all is not lost... i've got the 3500 up n running again... i'm just trying to get it back up to full speed... which is proving difficult on the neo2 w/ tt purepower 480... the voltages are all over the place compared to the ultra-d w/ neopower...

 

having trouble getting 2.7 stable atm.... got a feeling it's a vcore issue though so shouldn't be too hard to get stable and higher... i hope! :D
