You got nothing to lose now.

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

100% agree with you, that chip looks like the insulator simply exposed the copper conductors. Putting the IHS back on just grounded out some stuff. Going straight to nail polish (not one with metal glitter) or some sort of insulator would've been the next step before firing up. There must also be some level of thickness in that sealant, gotta have a thin blade favoring the IHS side. Better to scrape that than the chip.

Agree I had the right tools, and years of experience in electronics, repairing tiny transistors and everything. Needless to say I have a steady hand. Yet I as well killed my 3570K. It now adorns my keychain. biggrin.gif

Unless you got the money to replace it. leave it alone. Not worth the extra, what 500MHz? tops?

Hey guys

1 year has passed by and I just wanted to say the motherboard still works perfect. I have bought a 2600k OC'd to 4.5 and everything is still running stable.

And I kid you not but after the incident I wanted to get another cpu in a hurry so I bought a secondhand 3770 non k for 150 euro on Ebay...

After i transferred my money I never heard of the guy again -__-

I was so frustrated I destroyed many things in my house. I also went to the police but after a few months I got a letter they closed the case because they couldn't trace the seller...

In the end I bought a 2600k that still remains strong until today. People say Asrock is a cheap crappy brand, but in my case the board still works perfect after all the abuse.

My behavior towards online buying and modding hardware was careless at best.

I hope people won't make the same mistakes I made.

That's even more frustrating than having a cpu actually die in your hands. Sorry for your experience but that guy whoever it was is going to regret what he has done to you. Something about messing with others comes right back to you much worse if you start it.
I was wondering why you didn't atleast look at his trader ratings to really judge whether you could trust him?

I did check the "reviews" of the user, but it was in a quick glance. A few days later I checked the reviews closely and they where all in a period of a few days under different account with nonsens like "fast delivery, good seller, etc..."

So yeah that was my story about the 3770k smile.gif

Never forget.

Sorry for your loss, but this is not the sort of thing for "beginners" and yes even experienced users make mistakes, but those people can usually replace the chip in a heartbeat.

Some of us run out of spec overclocks as we just do not care too *cough*

If this is not the thing for beginners, how do you become experienced before being a beginner at first?

By learning with older parts, who would take an engine out of a car knowing they have work in 6 hours, and they are 25 miles away?

Fair enough thumb.gif though my first one was a real one but without casualties and a surgical blade tongue.gif
