O/C PIII 700 to 868 and........
I recently purchased a PIII 700E and overclocked it to 868 right out of the box. I had absolutely no problems for about two weeks. I was using an Alpha h/s with two fans for cooling. Cpu temps ran around 35 deg cent. But, I wanted more power!!! I installed a peltier with no problems I was thinking this would get me more. My cpu temps are now 23-25 deg cent. with the peltier.
It did temporarily. After a couple of hours at 931 my system kept crashing. I set the fsb back to 124 to run at 868. However, now I can't even run at that setting. The only fsb settings I can run at is 100 or lower. I can run below 100 with high pci settings and not have a problem so I don't think it is a hard drive problem or other pci device. I think the V3 would also not have a problem with over 100 fsb.
Any suggestions as to why I can not go back to 124 fsb?

I'll take two... CPU's
It's my guess you need to return the CPU as defective. I have seen this once before with a Coppermine. It WAS the CPU....
Yup, you just wasted your 700e Copper. Uuuuh I would have cried for hours.
I overclock. But here's the deal. If you overclock, you should be willing to accept it if you fry something. It would be wrong to return a chip because of something YOU did.
Just bring it back, and say that you played a little UT for a while, but then when you restarted, it would not run.
I fried my Viper V770 Video card, but I just acted calmly, and brought it back. No questions asked. Just hope that they do the same........
Update...I reseated the CPU again, (I had already tried that once before) and now everything is running fine again at 868. I am not sure if that is the final solution, but I will take it while I can get it.
Also, I agree with the statements about not returning a fried o/c cpu. When you o/c, you take risks. It is your problem, not the place where you purchased it from. It's like stealing and ends up costing all of us more $ in the end.
Swaping chips you pi$$ed up is wrong. Rip off the stupid peltier and try it again.
