Hi i want to ask,i have an old pentium 4 pc that haven’t been used for years and i was testing it to see if the power supply still works and turns on but the cpu doesn’t have a heatsink (I’ve bought a new one but online so still waiting) so I tested it a few time because it stop spinning sometime and I forgot to take out the cpu so it gets hot

And when i took the cpu out the power supply works fine

So I want to know does the power supply stopped because the cpu was overheating and can i still use the cpu if its overheat once?

Hmm... technically by the time the P4 came out, Intel cpus have thermal protection so it would have shut down the cpu when it overheats. So technically the cpu should still work. However, it is bad and a big no no that you did that. BAD.
