You probably can't.
Processors have thermal shutdown to prevent this from happening.
If I knew of such a method I would not tell you because it could be used for malicious purposes.

you mean I may use it to hack into other computers and damage them ?? lol , If I knew how to hack I wouldn't probably be asking this . Anyway the processor I need to burn is old , I read that old processors don't have these defences .

Why do you want to destroy it? And what do you consider old? Even an "old" Pentium 166MMX can run Damn Small Linux or Puppy Linux. Maybe instead of destroying the CPU you could experiment with different lightweight operating systems?

"Anyway the processor I need to burn is old , I read that old processors don't have these defences ."

If that 650MHz processor is a Pentium III or Celeron, you're out of luck. Yeah, even the old P3 CPUs had thermal protection.

The old PI and early PII chips are fetching $25 each here, just from gold reclaimers, the newer one have much less gold.

Download a copy of "stuxnet virus".....maybe you can modify it to do something other than destroy Iran's centrifuges!
