i never really looked a processor without any thermal epoxy on it, but i want to know this before i try anything. i just wiped the remaining residue from the epoxy off the processor of the system that i'm working on. the system was previously overclocked and stopped working, so i wanted to know if it's fried since there is a gray square on one portion of the card. upon magnifying the square, i saw that it was made of little circles (or squares but i can't tell). i hope this doesn't mean the card is fried, but is it?
