    I managed to f%&^*$ up a i5 3570k, now when i put it in the socket the warning LED assigend to CPU problems is lit, i get no image on the screen it wont boot(i dont have a speaker)
    The CPU itself is not getting hot i left it on for about 20 minutes and its at room temperature, i then said what the heck and i removed the cooler and i touched it with my finger and it was still room temperature.
    Should i make a key ring out of it ? :)
    Thank you.

    PS: i manged to do that by trying to delid it and my cutter slipped and cut thru the PCB i think its called about a millimeter deep :(

    Man, sorry to hear about that. You probably broke some of the traces. Shit man. Enjoy your key ring. :(

    I would try re-seating it one more time just to make sure but you're probably out of luck.

    Pictures? You could try to use a magnifing glass and a Conductive Pen to reconnect what you spliced through.

    Enjoy your paperweight. You could drill a hole in it and add it to your key ring.

    depending on the damage a conductive pen might do it
    else you may need to resort to microsolder

    cpu pcbs are multilayer pcbs, plus a 1mm deep gash will have cut hundreds of leads.

    This. It's a CPU, not an experimental PCB from the 70's.
