Cheap *** heatsink fell off!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Moving my pc to a different room apparently caused the plastic pegs to come lose from my mobo. I didn't notice at the time and booted up into windows before the comp shut itself down...

When I opened the case I saw the HS was hanging half off the mobo, not making contact with my cpu at all.

There weren't any burns on the cpu or smoke (thankfully), and after I reseated it, it boots normally, but I basically loaded it into windows with no heatsink... What kind of damage am I looking at here?

Absolutely no damage. The CPU thermal shutoff did its job, preventing the CPU from damage. No worries, your chip is fine.

Well, that is good to hear. Any idea what the thermal shutdown threshold is on SB chips? I wonder how hot it got...

It's a lost cause.

You should give it to me . I'll trade you my working 2500k for it.

Seriously though, its fine. Thermal Shutdown at its finest right here.

Yeah, probably. I hate the push-pin heatsinks. It never feels like they've very secure to me.

My H60 can't get here soon enough.
post #10 of 13
dont worry man its fine. I took my cpu heatsink off of my cpu on my old P4 system and it didn't even get to post without shutting down. a few times I did this. the computer itself was 5 years old at the time, and that was 2 years ago that I did it. runs perfectly still
