I think I might have damaged my 1700 Tbred-B for good.

I held mine at 1.65v/200/2200 for a week but somthing changed and now I can't get past 182/2000 or the BIOS won't save and the HD corrupts. My highest temp was 55c not counting the three or four 85c overtemp forced shutdowns due to a faulty Vantek TMD CPU fan.

I've heard of worse abuse without any problems but it might have been the overtemps that did the damage.

I might even have to permanately back it off to 166/1800 if I see any more stability problems. This rig has to last a good long while. I'll get an XP3000 or Barton when they get cheap.

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
