Broken CPU Socket

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm putting my build together (received my RMA'd 2500k today) and I take off the CPU socket cover only to break off a pin. Awesome. According to the 1155 pin map the pin I broke is "SB_BS[2]" and has something to do with DDR3. I suppose I was lucky.

The mobo is a Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3. Looking at Gigabyte's RMA policy it says they don't honor busted sockets. Anyone know if they will repair it? If so, how much?

If they don't - I've gotten to the point of getting over it and getting a new mobo. Any suggestions?

uh send that thing back. how does a pin come off taking off cpu cover. thats not ur fault unless u didn't release the lever and tried to force it out. it was probably loose from the beginning anyways

Not sure if they will do the same, but I messed up a socket on an evga board in the past and they just charged me $30 and replaced the board.

Calling Gigabyte the CSR said they would probably fix it - but he wasn't the one making the decisions.

I've submitted an RMA, so we'll see what happens. I tried calling newegg to see if I had any options, but the rep said "That's definitely user error, the RMA dept will reject it."

It's too bad - I ordered all my parts on 07/24 and have yet to do anything with them...

Giga will repair it if you ask them to. I think it's $60 USD.

You are better off doing that then trying to slip one over on them.

From GB RMA policy:
"Average turnaround time will be 2-3 business working weeks upon receipt."

I'm not going to wait another 2-3 weeks to get my mobo back. Depending on price of repair, ill either eat the cost, or get it repaired and ebay it.

Looking at new mobo's, I think im going to get a little bit better one. I just bought an ssd so there's no point to having a msata port anymore.

I'm looking at the Asus P8P67 PRO or Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3P...opinions?
