The dreaded crunch - but it survived! (0 Comments) (link)

Spent some time this morning playing with the new Titan Majesty Twins .. you remember, I reviewed the original one about a month ago and was less than impressed with it. Well, Titan went away and did some thinking - they sent over a new version with a few improvements.. sadly, it was as frustrating to mount as the original version, clashing nastily with the power riser on the A7V. After fiddling for a while I gave up trying to get it on and went to re-mount the super orb that normally cools the testbed.. and saw, to my horror, this:

Look at the top left corner of the core. Bad. I felt/heard no crunch or grinding noise or anything. Anyway, the chip survived, but I feel pretty lucky - that is a big chunk out of the core. Suffice to say Titan are off my Christmas list. I'm currently working up the courage to test the cooler on another SocketA mobo I have here.
