cpu damage?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The other day my cpu randomly crashed. I thought nothing of it. Id just installed second gtx 460 in sli so figured it was the overlook. Pc had been on for a few hours. I the undid the case and saw a wire had got tangled in my cpu fan and it had stopped spinning. im fairly sure this is why it crashed because the cpu overheated. Since freeing the fan no issues. It passes all stability tests.Intel burn test etc. No more crashes. Is it likely i did any dmg to the cpu. its been a few days since with no issues.

i dout you damaged your cpu cause modern cpus have a thermale overload that when they reach a certain tempreture they automatically switch the pc off ie i hade a q9550 and i overclocked it one day and the tempreture reached 118c and it automatically shut down with no blue screen i was using watercooling as well the lowest tempreture i hade on that chip was -7c again using watercooling i could have gone lower with the tempreture if it was a colder day i have also run chips without the heatsink installed for a few seconds without causing any damage and it is very rare for a chip to die they tend to degrade first before they actually die
