Just for any newbies who read this in the future thumb.gif

I learned not to attempt mods after drinking.

Well aren't you the kindest soul on OCN. So who has hands that are correct to begin with?

That's a bummer, damn I know how you feel. I, myself have ruined really good things in the pursuit of performance_ just needed to push it a little more and even then you wanted to push it as far as it will go_ then poof all your hard work gone to waste.

At least now you have a reason to upgrade to Haswell, look at it as a blessing =] (thats if Haswell gets released for desktops soon)

I can never find a reason to upgrade from Sandybridge to Ivy, no matter what I hate wasting money because I just don't see the benefit to me in my upgrade unless until Sandybridge becomes super obsolete, at least now you have a reason to upgrade thumb.gif

I feel bad for you, but I'm also upset that you would attempt something like this WITHOUT the proper tools. It's not hard to do. You need the right tool for a specific job. You can't make an ice sculpture with a sledgehammer. You can't tighten a lug nut with a paper towel. There's hundreds of people on this forum that did this right, and you didn't follow their advice.

It was an expensive mistake, and my heart hurts for you. But I hope you learned something.

this man...this man...speaks truth. That chip on the PCB is HUGE.
I would have used a smaller blade (costs like 5€ max even from a store).
The smoke - would have been the cooler if there was on on it.
If there was no cooler...then its the CPU.

CPU is probably gone, that said, try the paper method - WHO KNOWS! (paper in-between ihs and PCB)
You got nothing to lose now.

PS. haven't been reading through the thread, if these things were said - sorry for the repetition/error.

Shame about the CPU though if it's fully dead and it sounds like it if it was smoking. It does also possibly mean that the motherboard is dead, are you able to test your motherboard with another CPU? Anything just to see if it will post and take any form of load.

Looking at the OP he already tried to boot it. Paper or some nail polish, etc. on the PCB before trying to boot might have helped, but isn't going to help after firing up the rig & cooking the cpu.
You have to prevent the short circuit from ever happening, once power has gone through a short it is too late to fix it.

But the smoke could have been from his cooler?
I've had that on an old socket 775 stock cooler - resistor on the fan blew, and smoke came out lol.
(it wasn't connected to the CPU and/or on it luckily)

But other than that, you are very right thumb.gif

I'm wondering if OP even used thermal paste between the die and IHS.
