yes, it will, as to clear u out,
once I did that, as i want to change the thermal material of my AMD, when i installed new, i forgot to peel off the plastic film, and CPU didnt started, i tried 3-4 times, didnt still.
when i turned the heatsink, it was as good as new, as accordingly the thermal pad should have changed its shape due to pressure of CPU die, looking closely, i figued out that the platic film is still intact, and on removing, CPU started.
AMD's CPU die, though cannot save it from ove heating, but at leat can sense the proper thermal material presence, and you should never ever do what have u done.
once u detach the fan from CPU, always change the thermal pad/matereial, even though its 1 hour old.
