So I got my Athlon 1200C today, along with a Taisol CGK760092. Ditched the bubble gum for my Radio Shack compound as always. Fired it up at stock settings, ran a few benches. Temp in the BIOS was about 51C, so I clocked it to 10.5x133(1400). BIOS temp went to 53C, so I tried to boot it. Didn't quite make it to windows, figured this one's not a big clocker. Set it back to 1333, ran a few more benches, then rebooted and checked BIOS temp. It was only 49C, so I decided to try 1400 again. Again, didn't quite make it into windows. Set it back to 1333 again, went to install MBM 4.18 so I could watch the temp closer, and it froze up. Rebooted, froze sooner. Clocked back to 1200, froze again. Clocked all the way down to 500, finally won't even POST now

Whaddaya think? I've got: KT7A-RAID, 400W PS...I've pushed chips harder/hotter than this, and they've been fine. Bad CPU? Or do you think it cooked?
