Was looking through old hardware, curious about this CPU

Recommended Posts

Hey, this is sort of a trouble shoot, I was curious if this CPU looks like it’s damaged? My eyes aren’t all that swell & I don’t currently have a workstation to test it with, thoughts?

The picture is blurry. Could you back the camera off a bit and take another picture?

 

Never know if it works without a system to throw it in.

 

Take a picture of the IHS plate too. Curious which chip we're looking at.

Looks like a tiny bit of corrosion in those SMD components. Nothing a bit of alcohol and q-tips couldn't solve.

Be careful though, don't apply too much force as that could knock off a chip off the board. 

 

But I am not sure if that would cause it to be faulty, too many components to accurately judge it, since there is so much stuff invisible that could go wrong.


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

Nice chip. 

Clean it up as the boi suggested. 

Then find a board for it and post it up.
