As the title says. I'm assuming the reason for the immediate shut down was temperature, since the board recognized the CPU fine.I thought my h55 was good but didn't do enough research. Is it likely the new CPU is damaged, if it was overheated to the point of shutting off entirely, or will I be alright if I just go buy a better cooler? It only ran that way for 30 seconds to a minute. Also, whats the cheapest cooler I can use to support that CPU safely? My motherboard is a sabretooth 990fx.
If you want you can try to downvolt the processor aswell. This might lead to instabilities, but would massively reduce heat. (I've ran at max 4.4 ghz on stock voltage w/stock cooler on an 8350. You might have a lot of room to move your voltages and really change the heat output of the processor.
