So I recently replaced my heatsink and fan. After assembly, the pc powers on, and starts to boot. It gives a CMOS checksum error, and then powers off. I did some stupid things due to curiosity. I took the chip out when i cleaned the old thermal paste off. I dropped my pliers on the motherboard when i was removing the old heatsink. So i'm trying to diagnose the problem and figure out if there's something i can do to salvage the parts. motherboard: 780 SLi chipset: intel e8400 thanks for the help!
