CPU caused Motherboard to die twice?
Hi I want to buy a amd 4000 CPU from this guy, it has been used for for 4 months, but this is what he says about it:
"I used the chip for a good solid two months on a ASUS A8N-E Motherboard. I then bought a larger graphics card, and not realizing I didn't have a large enough power supply the motherboard stopped responding.. I sent the board back to be fixed and I got it back. I returned the graphics card and used an old one of mine not as powerful. I also bought a new PSU and everything worked again for about 1 week then the board died again. I bought a new A8N-E board which worked for about two weeks then it died also. I can't say for sure if the CPU is causing these boards to die on me, but I am leaning more to the idea that the boards are just defect. I can't see why I CPU would mess up a board after a week of using it.
I just want to warn people that I am not responsible if your board dies from the CPU I am selling. It really shouldn't if the board is made right and I now have grown to never buy a ASUS board again. But I can't guarantee anything. I recommend if you are really concerned about the chip hurting your board maybe send it back to AMD and have them run a test on it to make sure it's 100% ok. One pin did bend VERY slightly when I took it out once, but I straightened it out. I tested it and it now fits ok into the socket. "
Please provide your input, and is this possible?
