    i picked up a chip from the forums where the OP alleged it was a PSU killer.
    i didn't believe it, but the chip is clearly not well..

    I've had it re lidded ( thanks Ratzz ) and while windows didn't boot , i was able to pxeboot ( to a point ).
    am able to run memtest ( but only on the stability profile ie one core ) indefinitely.
    using multi core causes a freeze.

    it posts fine of course.

    pxebooting a fresh install of centos gives crc errors at the package installation stage...
    as in the installation recuses itself, due to the errors , so I'm guessing thats whats wrong with the chip..

    ive also running single x2 x3 cores via bios to see if i could isolate the issue, but that didnt work.

    before I bin it, is there anything else which anyone can think of which would allow me to run the chip , or is there anything you can think of that I could disable via , eg grub , to allow it to functino in a diminished capacity.. ?

    thanks!

    Interesting.

    Best guess: memory controller or cache.
    Is there a bootable memtest for cache?

    Tried underclocking it to the minimum to see if you can find a stable point?

    Make sure you underclock the shit out of it to boot. Especially the memory controller - and the slackest timings you can find.

    Basically, treat it as though you're trying to overclock from as slow as it can possibly go to its actual stock speed.

    You don't need one for Intel RMA.

    Doesn't matter, Court Jester completely destroyed his CPU by delidding it. He RMA'd it with Intel and they swapped it for him.

    Intel also mailed him two Russian brides along with it.

    I did not completely destroy it-- it still worked but I simply did not trust it any more

    but as long as the damage is not obvious they will generally swap it no problems.

    Like I said, completely destroyed it and Intel still swapped it. You should be alright dude.

    hey at least it was not sent back no fault found like your motherboard

    and he will only be ok if there is no visible damage or obvious signs of delidding.
