Not particularly functional.

Summary: In the process of trying to install this thing, I ruined 25 motherboards. However, it finally worked. Next, I needed thermal paste. It took about 100 2.5g Arctic Silver 5 tubes. Next, this thing idles at about 800C. Yes, 800. After getting an enormous AC unit for cooling, the idles dropped to 150C. Very hot, but that's the best I could do. The noise from the ac threatened to make me deaf. Then the electric bill came, and it was for a jaw-dropping $5000. I blame this CPU.
