Red face Not paying attention

I think I cooked my 850 Tbird.
I, in between other projects, was putting together another machine and, knowing the Tbird wasn't going to need the HD HSF, I put a OEM one on it. There is where I wasn't paying attention. My lg HSF has a step on the base to clear the step on the back of the socket.
It only fits that one way and I suppose I just got used to it. The OEM doesn't have that step. When installed, it wasn't in contact with the CPU core. It ran for about 5 seconds-It doesn't run anymore. Pay attention, stupid!
Not a great loss but why couldn't have been the Pentium 2?
Does anyone have an Athlon XP sitting around for a folding machine?
