Broken CPU Tags: CPUs Motherboards Last response: February 13, 2013 7:45 PM in CPUs Share elbundie February 13, 2013 6:55:54 PM I have a guess that my CPU is broken. I want to try and put it in another motherboard to see if its my CPU or motherboard. Is it possible that it could cause damage to the motherboard i am inserting the possibly broken CPU into?
