Socket burn mobo + CPU - Please Help - Page 2

post #11 of 24
btw don't be too hard on yourself. This is how things go when you start this hobby. You're out a few hundred bucks (maybe), but you've learned a bit. Many of the savviest folks on this forum - much, MUCH more knowledgeable than me - have a fried component or two in their past. As for me, I still have no idea what I did to make the capacitor on that Enermax psu pop...but I'm a lot more careful about raising volts and fsb on a new rig now. And any money you may have lost will be regained, with interest, when you get a $200 chip to run much much faster than the most expensive $1000+ chip on the market.

Wow, it seems to be working lmao...I'm posting this from my dell...now to see how many cores are recognized and if it can run games.

Ouch...doesn't look like I'll be playing too many games, all four cores seem to be running but the chip down clocked itself to just below 1200 MHz running a bus speed of 133 by a multiplier of 9.

Well the thing is, I'm not quite sure if I've learned anything because I don't think I did anything wrong, aside from buying second hand and using a chip that isn't on warranty. The thing is out of everything that could possibly happen, this is the last thing I would have expected. I didn't even think it was possible to fry a chip just because of "bad luck" without even ever attempting to OC.

Also, I'm still hopeful for a reply from the guy I bought the board from, he seemed like a very stand up guy.

run prime95 to see if the chip is stable. It's highly probable the chip is seriously damaged.

The problem is the socket design. Maybe it's too small, so that can happen. 1366 sockets did not have that issue, probably because it is bigger and it passed more testing. Not really sure, but you are not the only one with that intel issue.

Next time, you should be looking for information before buying anything.

Oh I doubt it's stable, no need to run prime 95, I wouldn't want to risk completely destroying it at this point. Also the funny thing is I did do a lot of research before buying the motherboard, I spent a good week on and off. I knew about the faulty foxconn sockets, but everything I read was about people doing extreme overclocks at 5 + Ghz and that apparently there was absolutely no issue otherwise. I was only planning on taking the chip to max 4.0 Ghz so I figured I was fine, sadly I didn't even get the opportunity to attempt it.

Have you tried cleaning the CPU contact points with isopropanyl?

If the burn marks are so bad Isopropyl will not get it off. Perhaps try some a little fine steel wool pad.

No, I didn't know you could "clean" them, are there any guides you guys are aware of. Seems like it might be worth a shot.
