Bent pins on 1155 mobo

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just removed the plastic cover from my 1155 mobo (Asus P8Z68-V Pro), and it looks like I have some bent pins. I can see how on the top right all the pins go in one direction, and on the bottom left all the pins go in the other direction, but on the bottom right (in the main bottom section) there are three pins that don't "go with the grain" if you will.

Is this normal? Or do I have bent pins, and should I RMA the motherboard with Asus?

Thanks.

I would try to RMA...maybe you can pay them for it? lol

Otherwise if it works it should be fine...

it is always classified as physical damage, from every manufacturer, not just asus.

Even if it came out of the box like that? And the pins don't look tweaked, or anything like that picture above. They almost look like they were installed backwards. Yes, I know that sounds impossible, but that's how they look to me.

If the manufacturer won't RMA it, I guess I'll just RMA it with Amazon (that's where I bought it).

Not funny! If you can't get an rma then use the mechanical pencil trick. Be careful, and slow going.

Thank you. Yeah, I'm definitely not laughing.

In fact, I'm sort of livid right now, because I want it all to work! It is made worse by the fact that only yesterday (Saturday) did I get all the watercooling parts that I need to put everything together, and many of these parts had been backordered for weeks!

I've already requested an exchange with Amazon, and they said the replacement part should be here on Tuesday. I think I can live with that. Thank god for Amazon! (Try getting an exchange that fast with Newegg)

Make sure to be very careful taking off the socket cap. Amazon is very good with returns.

I'm was very careful taking off the cap, or at least I thought I was. I had read about problems with the cap damaging things, so I used both hands to evenly lift the cap off the socket. I don't recall it banging into the pins, and the fact that (if they are bent) they are bent so perfectly as to appear backwards is what has me confused.

If I had a camera, I'd take a picture. I can't get over the fact that the three rogue pins are perfectly aligned, but facing the wrong way. Anway, Amazon to the rescue!
