Checking motherboard pins with CPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys!

I recently bought Mini ITX board (z170) which pins were bent on socket. I do have only one CPU which is in my main rig, i7-7700, and I want to check somehow if the board is working after my recovery attempt. Do you know if I can somehow break the CPU, burn it or whatever if I plug it in? Is there any way that it might get bricked?

 

Thanks!

I will, when I get back home. But, let's assume for now, that it has updated bios. Can I actually damage CPU if the pins would be damaged?

If a pin with voltage touches a pad on the cpu it shouldn't then yes, its a possibility so make sure all pins are where they should be, use a magnifying glass if you have to.

Did it arrive in this condition or did you mess it up yourself?

I paid 10 pounds for it. If it won't work I just mount it on a wall just to look cool. I'll get some cheap pentium and test it on it then.
