Burnt or damaged contact on 2500K? Looking for an opinion on. - Page 3

post #21 of 35
if you look closely at that its color really doesn't match a burn mark it looks more like something on the chip i would try a little alcohol and wiping it off before anything else it could just be something simply like that.

I tried taking a Q-Tip to it to see if anything would rub off, nothing. That **** is solid.

You can see some sort of semi-clear/shiny liquid on the surface of it, like if something were to have oozed out of that pin.

I guess you don't know what melted copper looks like, that's what it looks like.

I've never seen melted copper that looked quite like that unless there were impurities present when it melted, like flux when working on pipes etc. Then again in this case it probably is flux, just flux in solder, or perhaps a bit of silicon.

Melted copper + impurities means this chip was smoked and quite well at that.

As far as I know the seller had it sitting in his rig for quite some time. I guess it was working fine while shorted out, then he just removed it to be sold. I'll be getting my refund from him soon so all should be ok. Thank you to everyone here for the information.

If you melt copper with electricity that is what it looks like. (I like High Current Transformers)

Depending on how cheap that CPU was, go ahead and check this out > http://click.intel.com/tuningplan/

If you have a 2500k, you can pay 20$ to protect it from failure while OCing the chip.

How can Intel detect overclocking?
post #29 of 35
The scratches on the IHS aren't a big deal. I had similar things happen to the IHS on my 3820 from the retention bracket, however they weren't nearly that bad. As far as the pin goes...I wouldn't trust it. I wouldn't put it in any board and I would return it ASAP. If you purchased it off Ebay with PayPal you should get a refund no questions asked. I've called PayPal before and they generally have to side with the buyer regardless if the seller posted "No refunds."
