Re: [Parts Check] Quickest failure?
Way back in the day you could actually drop the CPU in more than one way. Must have been socket 4 as it seems socket 5 and up had asymmetrical pin layout.
I was upgrading the CPU in the family computer and it went up in smoke as soon as I turned it on.
Luckily that CPU was pretty cheap and it ended well with my dad paying for a new CPU and mobo that were better. I recall thinking that if I was evil I would've dropped it in the wrong way on purpose...
