    Can I run Xeon without heatsink 30 seconds to test startup?


      I am replacing the heatsinks on my dual Xeons (3.0GHz HT EM64T, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 cache, 90nm, mPGA604). Had to straighten some pins. I'd like to check functioning before commtting the heat sinks. Can I run for, say, 30 seconds, without damaging the chips? Thanks
