It was an old camera, out of battery for 2 years.
I made an attempt to run it bare die. I had to remove the retention clip that locks the CPU in place because the die is lower than the clip is, and that would create a big gap between the die and the cooler.
It didn't boot, probably because there was not enough pressure on the CPU to make all the pins make contact.
I put the lid and the retention back on and it works just fine.
Slightly off topic: I just recieved 3 PCIE16X risers from a deal on ebay
Time to shove my mobo and gpu into a suitcase and make a not-so-portable laptop.
