Does that mean聽my CPU is okay?

I dont see a reason why it would not be okay cpus kinda never die ^^ they Out live even the mainboards 90% of the time and there usefullness 馃槃

Hello,

I have a pentium G3220 that I got inside my uncles old computer because he was throwing it out when it didn't聽 work. I have isolated the problem聽to be聽 the motherboard, But then i found something:- there are few pads next to the heatspreader but one of them has some black substance on 聽it which I'm unable to remove with alcohol (it seems to be a burn mark). I have purchased a H81聽 motherboard聽 and it should come in a few days. Since that order is not returnable, please assist me. Also don't聽 mind the scratches on the IHS since my uncle took his heatsink on and off very frequently聽

Because the motherboard of my macbook 2015 died and the only computer I have is a Computer with:-

Celeron 420

1 gb ddr2 ram

Integrated GMA 945 graphics聽

80 gb hdd.

Also if I order from eBay it will take me 1-3 months to get the item and no seller is in my country.聽

You were right. Got my motherboard in the mail today and I immediately put the cpu in to see that would it post? and it did! I am currently installing my favorite OS (Debian 11)
