    what motherboard do you have?

    it takes A LOT of heat to burn thoes things... I have soldered them on to devices before and they went out of range on the scale.. probably around 300 to 400F, so I doubt you burned it..

    on my abit kt7 board the sensor for the processor was not going to touch the chip, so I bent it to a position where I would have to push down on the chip when I installed it.

    Those figures look about normal.

    It would need IMMENSE temperatures to kill one of those sensors. If the sensor was dead, your CPU would be long gone.
