SOURCE: I upgraded the CPU on
Under no circumstances should any CPU get that hot with proper cooling and functioning hardware.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PLUG THE BOARD BACK IN. IT IS A FIRE HAZARD.
Unfortunately, the board is done. Sounds like there was a failure somewhere on the board that probably caused the old CPU to be messed up. The bad news is that the new CPU may be jacked up if the board was bad and there's a burning smell. Even though the chip may look okay visibly, doesn't mean that it is.
Scrap the board and try to sell the CPU as-is and start from scratch. Socket A isn't all that common anymore and newer boards with a higher frequency bandwidth are pretty cheap and getting cheaper by the day.
I suggest newegg.com... You could easily get a new mobo and cpu for well under $100.
