maybe the dead CPU damaged the board and socket!

have you messed with the voltage on the dead one?

Have you tried it with a different kit of RAM? Was the CPU physically damaged when it died? I'd try remounting the CPU and checking the board for any bent pins.

You sure it was the CPU that went bad previously and not the mobo?

If so, it does sound like the mobo was damaged also.
