Worried that my CPU is damaged

Ok well...

I know you guy's will think that it's stupid, but when I was building my computer (first computer i've ever built) I turned the computer on a few times, for a few seconds with no heatsink or cpu coolers (yes i know, stupid)

It's a Intel i7 3770k by the way.

Anyways, I remember going into the bios and the CPU was showing 99 degrees C, so I turned it off immideatly and installed the stock fan.

Anyways, so the computer boots up fine and i've been using it for nearly two months and I'm using it now but I can't stop thinking that I somehow damaged my cpu and it's not working as well as it should (or would if I hadn't done this lol).

The computer idles at around 40 or less degrees C now, And i've only seen it go up into the high 70's with Prime95.

So what I want to ask is, is there anyway I can possibly run some software to see if my processor is up to par with other 3770k's?

Here is a "benchmark" test from prime 95 by the way, not really sure if this helps but yeah.

Thank-you

The cpu would shut itself off before damaged occurred. If it was damaged it wouldn't work or you'd be crashing a lot.

Agree with the last two posters. For a good few years Intel has had inbuilt thermal protection - It would have shut the computer off before any damage.

You can run the Intel burn test and that will soon tell you if any of the cores aren't giving the correct results.

Your CPU is actually dead; the only reason is it's probably working is because it's possessed. See an exorcist for that. Because ghosts are all fun and games until you piss them off, so you might as well get rid of it now.
