    A while ago I did this . Renderd the cpu useless, made the IHS into a keyring and chucked the cpu in my tool box amongts all the other pc crap.
    Tonight i was going through my tool box looking for something else and I came across this and thought, well I have a spare DFI mobo, ram and psu here lets chuck it in and see what happens.
    Well, as we speek its going through a Gruelling OCCT torture test, temps are a balmy 37 degrees and still going.
    Unreal, coz this cpu did 2800mhz out of the packet at 1.6v. Now with the lid off and I'll chuck it on water lets see.

    I just had to tell ya!!

    i know, aren't them wired? i swear i saw someone got dead memory, pull them apart, sit on desk for 2 weeks, back into the system, clocks better than before.

    man, i guess hardwares need a nap too?

    its probably operating but returning incorrect values adn soon you'll probabyl et bogus errors and risk damaging other components in that computer

    Hi guys, I ran it yesterday at 2.65ghz @ 1.6V on OCCT, torture test for four hours and it didn't fail. The temps got a bit higher than normal, about 55 degrees so I pointed a desk fan at it and they went down to 38 degrees.
    Grouse, first a reborn hard drive, now a cpu. What next?

    And yes that was a bit of a butchers job and that cpu but trying to control a screaming kid and trying not to take your finger off along with the IHS whilst using a super sharp modellers knife... :Paranoid:

    only works in so far as you can regain access to the partions or perform data recovery as a temporary measure, it really depends on how screwed up it is tho.

    According to this article it allows the track marker to realign.

    What i really want to know is what the hell that resistor on the CPU was supposed to be doing? I don't spose its unlocked now or anything?

    ROFL, Well done wonder how long will last. Sounds similar to the old Athlon chip I pulled out of a mates dead system a while back all attemps to revive it failed.

    I put it in my old 462 mobo and it's still going lol.
    :) :thumbup:
