I have just made a stupid mistake, just installed new HSF and forgot to connect the fan, got error beeps and turned off straight away will this have done permanent damage ?

Thanks for the reply, well it's still running and there are no burning smells it was only a few seconds on beeps and then off, I am sure that it's off longer when cool and quite enabled ?, anyway I can't beleive I forgot to connect the fan after all I was instlling a new HSF, a Noctua Nh-U9 a lot quieter than the stock intel one.

Additional Comment:

Ok just ran orthos and all was Ok temps 46 on one core 44 on the other, so I guess I have not done any damage.

yep, modern CPU's have built in protection to stop them from frying themselves when overheating. Some MB's won't even let you turn your comp on without an MB fan attached.

Thanks for that I can now sleep without having nightmares about having to buy a new one I just can't beleive I was so stupid to do that, so I take it that when they get to a certain temp it switches itself of or throttles back yes ?

na ur all good. as it was a new cpu cooler it should be cold and takes a while for it to heat the chunk of metal up to stop the transfer of heat.

No damage, they are made to sense and turn off, now 10 years ago... you'd have smelled that familiar electornics burning and cermaic melting smell!
