    If there are no bent or broken pins then your CPU should be fine.

    Run Memtest86+ from a floppy, CD or flash drive to check for possible RAM issues.

    Use "Core Temp" to check your CPU temp. under full load with P95, OCCT or linpack, to make sure your HSF is properly mounted and functioning? Your temp. under full load should be under 62C unless the room temp is above 75 F, then you CPU temp. may be a few degrees higher.
  3. ok i will run memtest86+ and run core temp to see if its under 62c
