    6 seconds... that's how long mine took to fry without the HSF... You might not see any visible scorth marks on it, but if you tried to start it without any cooling on there, then there is a good chance you did kill it... Can you try another CPU in your machine to test?

    I wish I had another CPU or mobo I could test with, would make this alot easier, I don't wanna go buy a new mobo and find out it's the CPU that's toast, or vice versa....

    I'll flip a coin on which to buy and hope for the best ;)

    btw, I did happen to notice that I can wiggle the HS while it's mounted on the CPU

    I should not be able to do that, should I :?:
