So I was trying to get this second hand motherboard to work - no go, when putting the cpu back into my normal pc, I somehow accidentally bent a few of the pins (on the corner) - and while bending them back, two snapped off.
This is a 3200+ Windchester.
But the pc still boots and seems to work fine!?! I guess it is still running 'out of spec' though.
I have been running Orthos 'blend test' for last 45 minutes, with no problems (not overclocked).
So I guess my luck has balanced out somewhat!?!
