Default What are the chances that I fryed my Mobo?

I did my first build and ended up installing the cpu wrong and fired up the computer a few times not knowing that there was anything wrong. The cpu didnt make any sounds but I was just wondering what the chances are that the thing is fryed cause I really dont wanna buy a new one along with the cpu.

What ya mean by the heatsink messed up? Do ya mean ya never got a clean contact with the CPU? If thats the case then ya CPU could be fried.

yeah, I doubt you fried the mobo by putting the CPU in wrong.
There's a possibility but it seems like an incorrectly inserted CPU wouldn't create a working circuit. If you didn't totally mess up the pins, you can bend them back. I bent a few once and got it in right, but that was on a small socket P4. The newer processors with 50 bajillion pins would probably be harder to fix.
