Possible damage to i7 2600k?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I finished my build. I went on ahead and popped in my OS, and it was installing etc...! So I took a look and saw that my cou fan wasn't spinning?! Immediately I turned my computer off. I checked the bios and it was detecting the i7 still! I am wondering if I got really lucky or should I be worried? I noticed it around 7-10 minutes in installing the OS.

You should be fine to be honest the cpu wouldn't of been under much load so as long as it didnt shut down from thermal overheat you got lucky!

Just dont do it again

It should be fine, it has a fail safe if it gets too hot and shutsdowns.

You're fine. CPU utilization shouldn't be that high during an OS install (unless you have an SSD), and the heatsink was still the CPU, it just wasn't being actively cooled.

Furthermore, almost all CPUs will shutdown after crossing a thermal threshhold to prevent damage.

Phew. Thanks guys! I was about pretty damn scared, haha. Apparently the stock fan won't run with the cords still jammed in the...little notches? I was trying to hide the cord, lol.

Oh the irony. It was an SSD, haha.

nothing to worry about. it's still within "tolerable" ranges even without the fans running. even with just the heatsink installed it's still giving some sort of cooling to the chip. it would shutdown automatically as well if the temps are too high.

The temperature probably got kind of high without cooling, but since your PC seems to do fine now, I don't think you screw up anything.

ive had a similar thing happen where i forgot to plug in my pump and my chip seems fine

Are you saying you forgot to plug in the cooler ? or perhaps the wires stopped the fan from spinning ? just curious.
