Fixing a BROKEN pin. It's Phemon II X4 955 - Page 2

post #11 of 54
I'd vote looking up AMD's technical diagrams for that CPU and seeing if they're "no connection" or ground pins. Chances are, if they are, the CPU will still work.

If not, you're probably hooped. I would try, as a last resort, the drop-the-pin-in-the-hole trick for the completely broken one.

To fix the broken CPU pin buy a piece of solder that has same thickness as the CPU pins, solder one end of it to the base of the broken pin and cut it to the appropriate length.

Try it in the slot without the broken pin. It may be unnecessary (i.e. a ground pin).

have you done this before?
I don't have a fine tip soldering iron. I's almost as wide as a the flathead screwdriver.

I need to find some solder that size, but I don't know where to look.

Yes, I have done this successfully on perhaps around 15-20 CPUs over the years.

Is the tip replaceable? Otherwise you could just buy a new, cheap soldering iron, they are not very expensive.

Just bend it back lol when I tried it put it in the mobo the first time (and this is my first build) I accidentally bent 20 of them worse than that one. I bent all of them back using a needle to get it as straight as possible and I put it in the mobo (this time without bending any pins) and its working fine so you don't have to worry about it. As for the one that has broken off completely ... I don't know if you can fix it properly without specialist equipment you can try and use solder though, I'm not sure if it will work but its worth ago. By the way did you break/bend it or did it come like that in the box if you bought it brand new. Because if it has then you can just phone AMD/company/person you got it from to give you a new one for free.

I friend sent it to me, I guess he didn't send the pin. I can do to Lowes or Home Depot to get a cheap iron. Also hear you can make your own Fine Tip Iron using copper, but I don't have copper, so..yea. I've seen on the online radio shack, but not sure if they have any at the store. The only I solder was this monitors power jack.

That's the one I got.
The head is removable.
