[RC5] Checking a bad proc..

To be more clear, The proc does not crash. It displays video and pictures wrong, adding blockish looking distortion to the images and video plays really odd. I probably should just junk it, new one is only ~50 dollars. Just i was trying to decide if I should whip up a box using a cheap ECS board, some old pc133 ram, and a Hd laying around. Use it for mp3 playing and dnetc or actually spend some money on a new proc, DDR, and motherboard.

anyway... thanks for the feedback/help all..

I don't see how they can run at full load with dnetc for 24hours, but 
crash under the tiny load of viewing jpeg files.

dnetc -test
