Ok i installed a new procesor heatsink and that was a pain in the butt because i had to take the whole mobo out after it took me forever to wire everything corectly.
So, after taking me about an hour to correctly place this heatsink in when i set it back up it sagged... Im not sure if that is bad seeing as its putting a lot of stress on the mobo. So i hacked up a coat hanger and hung it pulling up slightly on the heatsink to take some of the stress off the mobo.
So, now I finnaly put it back on and turn it on. The tornado kicks on that is posibly the loudest fan ever. Thats not the problem though.
I spent 85 dollars on this heatsink http://www.frozencpu.com/cpu-tta-20.html
and i turn it on check out the temperature and its higher than before at about 75 degrees... So now im even more pissed but i give it time to let the AS5 do its thing.
Then its running at same temperature. Then all the sudden it freezes. Im thinking ah must of just overheated so i let it sit and turn it back on fans kick on video card is on (i can tell because of the red light) but nothing happens. The computer POST's because i see the keryboard flicker.
So now i'm pissed off and dont feel like taking the heatsink off because im afraid i applied to much AS5 and it might have leaked into the CPU and fried the CPU.
Would everything still start up and POST if the CPU was fried im 99% sure it wouldnt. GIve me some ideas you guys might have. Before i take it all apart and troubleshoot it I'm just frustrated right now.
