  1. You should be fine, unless you shuffled across a carpeted room and touched it while it was grounded. Plug it in and fire it up.
  2. Just as long as you didn't bend any of the pins. Corrosion should not be a problem. You should be fine.
  3. Its a strange LGA CPU that has pins...

    OMG u are so screwed, u know what this means? Your cpu is no longer a virgin! It will now go clubbing like crazy on the mobo, getting drunk with nb and sb m8ts and wont get any processing done cause the only thing in mind will be getting dirty with the foxy gpu.
  8. Overclock it already.
  9. Thanks guys. I went to bed so worried I had an upset stomach. Phew.
  10. Rule of thumb... when in doubt, SMOKE TEST!!!*

    Do not touch its bottom as this can cause the computer to go down on you.

    Also, please refrain from touching your external floppy.
