celeron missing pin...

Hi, well stupid me. I was switching around cpus, and when i removed my celerson 566, one of the vid pins that controls the voltage got stuck in the socket... The computer seems to still run fine, but are there any adverse things that will happen now that its running with one less pin?

Thx.

as long as the voltage is good, I say run it, I had one lost a pin once, took a peice of wire and stuck it in the hole where the pin wasn't, and just made it a teeny bit too long.. jammmed the CPU in, and as far as I know it still runnin

I got all my l33t computer skills through this simple phrase: "Play with it until it breaks, then don't play with it so much next time."
