Fortunately, I've never made that mistake. My current processor is over $300.
I use the cloud with silver linings axiom with most mishaps. I bought that CPU many yrs ago. OC'd it to just shy of 1gb (almost exactly at 1gb it would start to hiccup) with cheap memory. It would run well at 950.
I used & abused it for a long time.
The silver lining is I learned a valuable lesson on an old, tired CPU that was probably happy to be put out of it's misery. RIP
