How can you tell if you've fried your CPU?

I've just been playing with my bios and I got my CPU upto 12x200 @ 1.85v undervolting at about 1.8v.

So thinking more power I tried to get the multipier up but it would only go from 12 to 13 (which wouldn't boot) missing 12.5. I sat and thought about it and remembered the default was 12.5, so I left it tried booting and it nearly got to windows, hmm, more ok, maybe another .05 Vcore might help, but as it tried to boot I got a messed up screen and now she doesn't boot, I've reset the CMOS but nothing... Not even beeps...

Any ideas....

Could it be the ram... I dont want to pay out for a new CPU but I was intending on buying a pair of Dual 512s...

What mobo were you using? Could be a dead BIOS chip too if it was an NF2 chipset.

OK, so it's the CPU and can't be anything else, I've just brought the DFI Lanparty B and I don't want it to be that....

I've had the Lanparty about a month and I swear by it.... As I say, there is nothing, if the CPU was dead would you be able to get to the bios or heard the beeps, or would it just be dead, ie starts but nothing happens, no VGA signal or anything...

I thought that the bios chips only got messed up while flashing...

Give it a try a gain:

1) Turn power off (yeah, I know you might have done that)
2) Take battery out.
3) put jumper on positions 2 & 3 on JP1
4) Turn your head around 4 - 5 times ()
5) put the jumper back to positions 1 & 2.
6) Put battery back in the case.

Now reboot it.

If you can hear a beep or more, or if you can get into bios setting screen, your CPU is still good. Yes, Lanparty Ultra B has some issues, but tell me which one doesn't? I have better luck running this mobo with tictac 2-15, and here it is, just in case you like to try.

Ok, thanks, I've never had removed my battery to reset my CMOS before, but it's worked... Thanks again...

I've got her set up as 12x200 @ 1.9v undervolting at around 1.85v. The CPU temp is around 38C. Is the voltage ok to leave at that.

38C is nice. The question is, are you happy with 12x200? If so, leave it as is. Why not trying to push your CPU/System up to its maximum operational speed. Unless you really think 200x12 makes you an Extreme Overclocker, do you? I think not.

My suggestion is to raise your FBS and lower your multiplier, i.e. 220MHz x 11. Then 225x11.... and so on until it stops booting. Then go back to the previous frequency which your CPU can consistently boot/post.

GOod luck

I can't get over 200mHz until I get some decent ram, (yea I've tried and tried.. ), my 333 is running at 400+ as it is and it's cheap Nanya... so the only way to get higher CPU was to increase the the multiplier, but as soon as I get my Dual, I will.....

It did what I wanted it too, for now, and that was to bust 40k on Aquamark..

Thanks again....
