Default Fried CPU?

Well I think my CPU got fried, it had shut off on me a couple times, and it kept freezing so I looked for the problem. Then I found out my Athlon 64 3200+ (Venice core) was running at 65 C, which I think is right on the verge of automatic shutdown. Anyway I shut it off, and it was late so I figured I'd mess with it later. I tired starting my computer up this morning. All my fans, lights, etc. turned on, but my "idling" monitor displayed nothing. I'm figuring my CPU went bad. What are some symptoms of a fried CPU? What will a motherboard do without a CPU, will it even display POST?

All my components are 1 month old, there was no overclocking, and yes, ALL my fans were working. I have an Albatron K8SLI motherboard, 6600GT MSI PCI-Express card, 80 Gb SATA Barracuda, and my socket 939 AMD Athlon 64 3200+ with the Venice core, 1 Gb CORSAIR PC3200 RAM. By the way, there were no definite signs of burns, but I couldnt' tell if it looked darker in some parts than others ( so th color differences were minute).
