Can I troubleshoot CPU without Fan?

Go to solution Solved by Aditya Dighe,

As per this video you can. ( The video creator doesn't recommend it)

 

Recommended - Not At All Recommended,

it can die within seconds, temperature of transistors rise very rapidly, you won't be able to touch it , even if it runs for mere 2-3 seconds

 

If you atleast have heatsink on top of it, it is just a bit safer..

 

If trying - try at your own risk 

 

As subject above states. I'm using my old parts I had set aside for a month which was working completely fine before this happened, but somehow how it won't display anything on monitor. I troubleshooted my GPU(Ok), Monitor & Ports HDMI&DisplayPort(Ok). I'm still yet to do my ram.

 

But I'm seeking answers for the subject first. Then help provide tips on other steps to troubleshoot please. Thank you! sorry, I am learning from you guys to troubleshoot.

i would not power on a system that doesn't have a cpu fan. best case scenario - it powers itself off in 3 seconds, when it reaches 100C; worst case scenario - it doesn't turn off in time and it breaks.

Hmm true, Yeah I rather be in the safe side. Thank you haha

When there is a heatsink without a fan on the CPU it's not that bad, as you dont load it with work while only troubleshooting. But no fan and no heatsink is bad. Really bad.
