BTW.. from the top pocs the core usually gets chiped edges if it's crushed... looks fine to me... from the top that is.
No burnt spot, no chipped edges.

There is some heatsink compound that is on the chip but a tiny tiny bit on the surface of the chip. I think this might be bad...

the whole thing sounds iffy ..a flopping heatsink probably damaged other things on the board like caps and stuff. if it was me and ur going to spend any money at all i would step up..get a board/processor to start and then add good memory ect when u can afford it. u got everything else to get started on a new build. u could probably bring that cpu into a local shop and theyed test it for nothing to if ur cool with them

These look like great boards!

Will they fit in a mid-tower case? For now I will just use the HP case. Once I get some more loot I'll invest in a nice PSU and case/fans....

Yeah...I'm thinking I'll just walk in, place the sealed processor on the counter and tell them I'll pay them 10 bucks for them to put it in a machine and run a quick 10 minute stress test on it.

I just signed a lease and dropped $2000. A 60 dollar upgrade on a board and a free newish processor like this Athlon 3000 is all I need right now. I need to get into this century for cheap....have you seen my current specs?!

It will fit, hp is known for breaking some standards but an atx case should still be an atx case. If you can't get someone to test it I might stil go for it and get the mobo, you have most of a new pc there and if you need to drop another $75 or so for a decent athlon xp cpu a few months down the road you're still ahead of the game from where you were a week ago. An athlon xp barton core running 2.0-2.4+ghz is still a good machine with the right graphics (didn't they come out with a 7800 variety in agp?).
