On both the fried Tbirds I've seen, there was a circular ring of black crud in the thermal paste. Other than that, there was no difference ('xcept that it didn't work).
Sorry I don't have any pics.

I don't think you could tell by looking at the 2 I've fried. If you held it under your nose you could though! Both of mine were just barely fried, people who have hard core fried them, by dead fans etc, might have some distinctive marks.

I also close to fried:mad: a duron 750 by booting without a hsf. The bottom part and the label are a little black. It still works though!

Those durons are amazingly resilient.

I smelt that alot, I believe my fan in the PSU failed, and it was smelling like burning! Luckily I was on the computer, and well I turned it off, at that time I knew nothing about computers, then my dad brang it to these people who replaced the fan.
