|A dying processor sound's kinda like a LOUD POP.|
And as far as a "crappier motherboard", I severely doubt it.
Fortunately I paid nothing for it.
I did the research on this board after I killed the processor,
and came to the same "crap" conclusion.
Unfortunately I thought it was good and bought a processor
for it. This is why I asked if this processor type was supposed
to work with this MOBO. The manual lacks this information,
as do most of china's technical documents.
