It's possible that the CPU is borked though cause not only did USPS use the package like a Hacky Sack, the CPU was dropped on its side and landed with a plop on linoleum surface without touching the pins. It's likely that the CPU is toast. But since I don't have any TIM at the moment. I'm stuck with what's currently on it until my new tube arrives so I can't check the pins to be sure that they're intact. I know they are but no way to check atm.
Hate on BBY all you want, but their Dynex thermal compound is within a degree or two of AS5 and it's ridiculously cheaper. I've been using it on most of my builds for years now because of how cheap and readily available it is. Go into your local store and get some TIM.
BBY? Not sure what that is. I lied about being out of TIM though. Not intentionally, just found about a Gram of G751 and a half gram of the supplied MX4 that came with my CPU block.
The box they were in got set aside because of all the work goin on round here having to move rooms around for the workers.

Oh yeah guys, I live out in the sticks. We don't have a consistent Computer parts store in town. I'd have to drive over 3 hours round trip to to get some at Fry's in Portland OR. Hopefully I can change this but for now we're lacking supply stores.
