I bought this build used, including a Corsair CV550. I have a CV650 that I intended to move over to this build, but since I had trouble booting and whatnot, I left that to be dealt with later. I am in the process of trying to plug in my old CV650 to the system and see if it makes any difference.
after 30 years of building and swapping out cpu's, ram, gfx cards , sound cars , nic cards, M.2 drives (not 30 years of cause) and never used one I have to disagree.You're forgetting something. It goes by 3 letters: ESD.
Unless he grounded himself to earth ground during the procedure, he more than likely fried his CPU removing it.
The likelihood of that happening are so slim i have more chance of marrying the next queen of england.
unless your a heavy user of nylon products such as, carpets, socks and cloths and combine them all whilst practicing your breast stroke swimming techniques for 30 mins, clad in fully nylon cloths, laying on a nylon carpet just before removing the CPU then yeah maybe
but otherwise I doubt it.
but I could be wrong.
