If you installed your CPU without thermal paste and a heat sink and ran the computer, you may not have a CPU anymore.

Here are some generic instructions.....

well the computer still turns on and gives me a screen, if the cpu is broke will it still do that?

it is very convient that the book "building a pc for dummies" figured that the readers were smart enough to already know everything about heatsinks... o well. i will pick up a heatsink sometime soon and hopefully that will solve all my problems, and hopefully i dont need to buy a whole new cpu.

on the bright side, i ordered a case fan from newegg along with some wires and for some reason they sent me a 100$, 1 gig stick of memory for free along with my fan...
