After fixing my cpu, the hsf is missing 2 out 4 hsf to motherboard screws, I am getting the last two screws tonight, is it safe to run the computer with only the 2 screws, they are place diagonaly and I applied thermal paste and let it dry overnight. Will the cpu be fine for just today, and can I play graphic intensive games? Thanks
I agree with CD. You can try it but really for best results the heatsink needs to make full contact with the CPU heat spreader. If it overheats though and gives you a thermal event shutdown don't run it until you get those screws in place.
