Default 2.4 GHz Prescott upgrade ..

Howdy,

I have a dilemma .. I've purchased a 2.4 Gig Prescott w/1MB L2 and I cannot get this thing to run. I've tried two different motherboards, switched to a 650W power supply and I can't figure out why it won't work. Here's what I have: 2.4, 533 FSB, new motherboard, new ram, new video card, new power supply .. can this thing be shorting out in the case? I have an antec case and I'm one step away from scrapping everything and buying a new case. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Jammer

Could the proc itself be bad?

Possible, always .. I'll try to get someone to check it out for me .. it was a boxed retail so I thought it was probably good, I've replaced about everything else .. so I'll try to get the processor checked.
