    The Pentium Classic uses 3.3VCore. You should set the motherboard to VRM , or manually to 3.3V.

    The Pentium MMX uses 2.8V. Some people may mistake Classic vs MMX and run the MMX at 3.3V, wich is not very good if you don't really know what you are doing. Please make sure you know wich version is this chip.

    Hey, I did the same thing ! But in my case it was a piece of the Northbridge that flew across the room.

    Those VRM really can be dangerous to mess with if you don't know what you are doing. I should have remembered to post it before.
