My best friend was upgrading his dad's PC. He was upgrading it from a 200mhz Celeron to a 600mhz one, his dad doesn't need anything powerfull.

Anyway when he hooked it up the PC speaker was going CRAZY. It was beeping like a cell phone on steroids. He called me and asked what could be wrong, but we couldn't find the problem. That sound was really annoying, I couldn't stand if over the phone. The PC was working fine, so my friend got ****ed off and ripped off that PC speaker with some plyers. The speaker was attached directly on the motherboard, you couldn't just unplug it.

Now a few hours later he asks me if a CPU running at 70*C is too high. I'm like HELL YEAH shut your PC off. He said it wasn't his, it was his dad's :). A Celeron 600 running at 70*C.....HOLLY! I'm suprised it even works. I'll be even more suprised if it works by tomorrow hehe. I'm going to let him borrow my artic silver, if it already ain't to late ;).

The computerized version of "Kill the messenger", huh? Hopefully ripping that speaker off the board didn't cause any damage to the board that's causing this heatup.

That speaker was important? :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

I'm pretty sure ripping the speaker out wouldn't raise the processor's temperature. :D

heh. Celerons are bulletproof. I mean it. I should collect dead ones and make armor out of them. I have a slot1 300A here that I have run with no heatsink what so ever at the goody speed of 450mhz. Sure, you dont want to touch it (made that mistake.. got a serious burn), but it'll get into windows just fine :)

With heat like that it's only a matter of time, unless you leave the machine on a lot, turning it off and letting it cool only weakens the metal each time it heats back up.
