I just heard about this but it's not explained well. Whatever it is it can be answered through experience, cause they say EM caused by overclocking and moslty due to upping the voltage causes some cpu's to die out in 2 years and have problems before that resulting in crashes and whatever.
I'm worried cause I clocked my 1.2 ghz AXIA thats supposed to be running at 100fsb@ a 1.75 voltage to a 1.4 ghz 133fsb cpu@ 1.85 voltage wich is highest. I also did the same thing with my ram (2.7v from 2.5). But then I read that it's .18 micron so it's big enough not to leak electrons or something. I am running super cool at 45C idle. My cpu used to lock up fr no reason after about 2 hrs of just normal computing, even before I o/c'ed it, I got newest BIOS, Drivers, and patch files which seem to help alot.
Anywho, I was wondering if anyone has an old o/c'ed cpu that just gave up on them in after 2 years and if this EM thing is true or just something made up by the big guys so we upgrade faster or something.
