x58 w/ bent pins! - Page 7

post #61 of 78
I bent a pin on mine like a dumbass when I took the cover off of the socket. Only 1 pin was bent upward so I just took a magnifying glass and a toothpick and pushed it back down. It never gave me any problems.

It is a messed up situation you are in but I think if the pins were bent upward and dont touch other pins when pushed back down when you seat the CPU, then you are in the clear.

If you have to bend CPU pins back, get a mechanical pencil, I think it's the .5mm lead ones? The size is about the same as the pins and use that to straighten it back

I think they think op damaged the motherboard and won't take it back because there is no way to prove that it came that way.
I think you should go to Frys, buy a remote control aircraft, attach the motherboard to it using some kind of twine or duct tape, and fly it through the window near the returns department.

I thought so.

OP: either file the claim or live with the hardware.

I'm kind of surprised bent pins are so common, I have an old processor that I just leave sitting on my desk and throw it around when I'm bored and the thing is still fine.

Intel processors don't have pins on them, the pins are in the CPU socket. And they're flimsy as hell.

Also I seem to have stable temps with my frio cooler, idle 40, full load around 80.
well im leaning toward keeping the mb so i am very concerned with making sure its quality before the 15 return is up. does my stuff look ok?

The best way to tell would be to take the rig apart and look at the bottom of the processor.

Although the pins in the CPU socket are prone to being bent from side to side, they're made to be compressed by the processor to ensure a good connection. If you take the processor out and look at the contacts on the bottom side, each of them should have a small dimple on it from the pin creasing the contact. If the contacts that touch the bent pins have an identical crease on them [when compared to all the other contacts], you'll be fine.
