Did I damage my CPU?!

Go to solution Solved by Skiiwee29,

Likely no damage, but not a smart move to repeat in the future. 

Hi everyone.

So basically what happened is; a friend of mine had trouble with his pc. I then offered to take a look at it, as I know my what around a pc.

I came to the conclusion it's the HDD.

But in the troubleshooting process I removed the cpu to check if it was the cpu. (I took the fan and heatsinc off in that process)

I the put the whole pc back together (except the cpu cooler) then started it up. It booted into windows and shut off again. I know that is because of over heating. Did i do any terminal damage to the CPU.

 

Ps. Cpu is a AMD A8 7600

The CPU will be fine. It has overheating protections for a reason.

Well, unfortunately it doesn't seem so.

Just put the pc back together with the heatshield and fan. But it isn't booting 😭

I checked everything but cant find any other problem.

 

Looks like I'll have to buy a new amd FM2 socket cpu

Thanks. I definitely won't 

Seems like there was damage, not booting after reassembly.

I've never seen an option to do that, and even if you did find it, why would you disable them?

If your doing silly things with Ln2

My mobo has the option to set the temp you choose before it throttle and shut off plus specific ln2 options for those type of things

No. Bios is unchanged. I never mess with that.
I'm still on the hunt for an FM2/FM2+ socket APU
