I just fried 2 AMD XP 2400+ CPUs on my mobo. It had a old Pentium
200Mhz heatsink on it with a fan. The system was only one for 5 seconds and then it turned off. Was the cpu just overheating because of the poor heatsink or a bad mobo problem?

you should've never even thought about using a pentium 200mhz heatsink and fan on a newer cpu.it was made to support the 200mhz intel line along time ago.and you put it on what....a 1.8GHz? 2.4GHz?
buy a new heatsink and fan.and no it's not a motherboard problem.

You asked this question in the cpu forum, and in this forum. Don't cross/double post questions.
