    So I was installing a barton 3200 in my sisters computer and I applied the thermal paste to the processor and to the heatsink (where i wiped the original paste off). What I accidently did was clip the heatsink on 'backwards' so the paste on the heatsink wasn't touching the paste on the processor.

    So I booted it up, checked the speed and then went to download MBM. At which point it rebooted. 'Oh shi-,' I thought as I checked the temperature in the BIOS.

    118°C

    I win.

    Until someone else posts a higher one.



    In my defence the heatsink is so much easier to clip on the way I clipped it on originally, the 'correct' way means forcing a screwdriver between the small gap between the heatsink and the PSU.

    That's hotter than my old XP1800+ under load by a mile, and I even reused the thermal paste on that ;). I'm amazed that you even got into Windows...

    Must have been quite an "oh shi...." moment, though.

    I've seen 127c, but I know for a fact it was a software glitch. Using the same software, I'd seen my NB fan at something around 642,000RPM.

    I dunno what the temp was but...

    I was working on me comp one day and had removed the cooler to re-seat it or summin, the cooler was left on the side and I went off to get my lunch. I then come back about half an hour later and instinctively turned the pc on, then went away to hunt for somthing in the garrage, I came back a few minutes later to a black sreen and re-membered what I had been doing :duh: :waah:

    I turned the pc off for half an hour, come back crossed my fingers and pressed the button... cmon, pleeeeasse!......



    ..... It works!!!! :clap:

    Bloody lucky, it still worked perfectly fine somehow and carried on using it for another 6 months :D


    Supposudly my hardisk was at 13124144525oC or summin using the hdd tool the other day :hip:

    I think we've all done that before Fibre+, I did it with an old Celeron a few months back, still ran XP, just a bit slow... :p

    I never have...but then again I always automatically pull the plug whenever the proc is seated without a cooling mechanism in place.

    I've had the HD thing happen before too. Just a tad warm... core of the sun or so. At the time I could have used it... winter in Vermont with a window making up 60% of your wall and being the last in the heating circuit isn't too fun.

    my friends 2600+ barton hit 93c i shut it down and had to rebuild his pc. Between the heatsink getting bumped and the cpu fan sucking hot air from the PSU it was a bad situation.

    ditto Firehed. Worst i ever did was a P3 1.2 to 79C by not plugging the sink in, and 99c on a 1GHz CU-Mine without the fan on to see if it was passively stable.
