Testing Intel 6700K with AMD Heatsink?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Okay, hear me out. I have a new 6700k build coming up this week and it will be fully watercooled with a custom loop. Since there are so many Z170 MOBO's that come DOA, I would like to test the mobo before it goes into my rig.

My question is, can I put some TIM on the 6700k and hold the AMD (A8 5600k) heatsink and fan on the 6700k to see if it POST's? I think I can but would like to make sure from some of the experts.

Thank you all

OneFun

You'll be fine for testing post, cpu isn't going to get that hot until you start running stuff.

Yea you dont even have to mount the heat sink... used to test cpu's specifically all the time along with ram at times, just slap a very small dab of TIM and place the sink on , smash it down ( not hard ) and just turn it on and put it in the BIOS and do what you gotta do from there. NEVER have a cpu and not have a heatsink on it.. that'll burn it up very fast

Your cpu will shut the system down before any damage occurs

^ That is a debatable answer just because it has to be able to detect the heat (boot to POST) to be able to shut down...according to some people. But yea, worked well smile.gif
