Yea, it means break in, but you can not burn in a CPU. The only computer part you can burn in is BH-5 RAM.

CPUs have a period where they sort of get broken in, in the first 100 hours or so some weird stuff can happen with a non burn in cpu (mine orifinally said it was running at -8 ghz, lol?). After that period they act normal and generally run cooler.

That is because after a "burn in", the thermal paste cures more so it helps cool better.

Quote:
Burn-Inis a term that is generally used to describe a test, or continuous operation, of a component, assembly, or system before it is put to use. During a .burn-In. test, the component, assembly, or system is typically subjected to an elevated temperature and its operating electrical conditions. Stabilization, defect detection, or inducing early-life failures are the objectives of a .burn-in. test or operation.

a random definition from google. therefore a cpu can be burned in as can virtually any component.

lol. but really (excluding headphones) just about any component can be burned in. stress testing can be considered burning in. and unless it's some big misconception i've seen a lot of guides for burning in cpus.

edit: by the way 003 my ocz gold is bh-5 so by your definition my rig needs burning in anyway.

did some more experimentation and it's stable at 2.25ghz, ROCK STABLE. thats at DDR 405 i think it is, using a 9:10 divider. i would go for 2.4ghz at DDR480 but for a problem i read of where high vdimm can fry E revision processor mem controllers. to avoid the problem higher vcore must be run so i'll leave where is until i get better cooling. the ocz stuff will run as high as DDR440 at 2-2-2-5 with stock voltage (2.8v) so i'm quite impressed. by the way vdimm was the cause of my stability problems before lol, also why i started getting errors at stock speed. i assumed the mobo had set the voltage correctly but it had set it at 2.6v instead of 2.8v no wonder i was having stability issues overclocking.
