here is the situation switched CPU from one board to another. cleaned off thermal compund and regreased. installed heatsink. powered up----nothing no beeps no POST. restarted with same results -- checked diagnostic LEDs all four red indicating a "improperly installed or damaged CPU" qucikly powered off. pulled heatsink and then smelled a very funny burning odor. CPU visually looks ok but system will not boot.
How is AMD on warranty?
