Dec 21, 2001
I have installed 3 1600+ on my MSI Pro 2 and my Soltek board.And all three chips blew out right after the first boot.
I try them in my main rig and nothing,the chips dont look burned.
It boots into the post and then it went dead.
On the MSI board the warning sounded for the CPU fan,it said it wans't running but it was and before I could shut it down,it was dead..
Any ideas,ive tryed 2 different power supplies.
All the chips were from New Egg,the ones on sale for 52.99..
Im lost on this one.
