Typically if they are crushed/chipped you can tell with visual inspection (possibly with magnifying glass) after cleaning. Burnt ones often just smell bad. Be carefulas some boards - like ASUS - can go into a 'coma' and be difficult to rouse after a particularily ambitious overclock. Make sure you do the equivalent (in pretty much this order) of: unplug psu remove cmos battery backup short 'clear cmos' pins remove and reseat memory switch between jumperless and jumpered mode (set fsb and multiplier to stock) Unless you have reason to specifically worry about your cpu it could be: Memory Mobo Video Card CPU CPU fan (if you just changed the heatsink some boards must have a fan connected and running to the fan header to operate.) PSU All are/may be critical. -* This Space For Rent *- email for application details | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Cpu Toast?> Related ressources: ForumNo boot - mobo or CPU toast ?
