I recently got a second 6950 for some crossfire power and come to find out the pins in my main PCI-e slot (top most) don't make contact with my graphics card. Am I pretty much boned on this or is there a way to fix these bent pins?

Is there any way to slide a very small screwdriver in and bend them back in to place? Aside from that you could A. contact the manufacturer on how to fix/repair it or B. take it to an electronics shop and see if they can do it.

Good luck!

If you respond to one of my posts in a very busy thread, I probably won't see it, so feel free to message me.

TheJesus is right. Try to manually fix it by some thin metal. But don't **** it up or you may lose you warranty.
