So my temps were running really high, so i decided to buy some thermal paste and reseat my fan, I unscrewed my fan and it wouldnt budge from the CPU. I was told to lightly twist and pull, so i did. My entire CPU came with it while it was still clamped in the AM4 socket, That was a heartdropping moment as i had a feeling it would break my CPU, I put everything back in and installed my fan again, now my CPU voltages are jumping all over, not staying a consistant temp and my CPU utilization is jumping, did i break my CPU?
