Worried CPU might be damaged

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just did a new built today with an AMD CPU.

When installing the heatsink i messed up a few pins on the CPU... took me a while but i bent the pinks back as best I could. Finally able to fit it into the socket... actually had to push a little, not very hard to "force" the CPU into the socket (heard a soft click since i had to somewhat force the CPU into the socket.)

MOBO actually booted fine and now it reads the CPU and clockspeed etc.. etc... does this mean all is fine and i have nothing to worry about??

sounds like your good if it's up and running
Looks like you dodged a bullet.

Nope. If you care to, run a benchmark like Prime95 and be sure she is stable but just because you were able to boot up, it's a good indication you're g2g!

I think you should consider yourself very VERY lucky. NEVER EVER NEVER NEVER (NEVER) put force on the cpu to put it into place. not even a push. It should just sit itself right in. Your lucky aswell that those picks went back into place. Try playing some gams or something to make sure its stable

edit: I got double ninja'd :S

I believe it's OK.
Had that happen once with a new Opteron 175 chip (Still have it) and it acts the same way even now related to not wanting to simply "drop" in the socket. It still works great to this day and it's actually the best clocking 939 Opty chip I have, even better than my 180.

Nothing to worry about.This happened to a friend of mine and almost did the same and now working awesome.If it boot up 90% no problem.Run prime to be 100% sure and NEVER push the cpu to enter the socket. Be careful next time.

You should be fine mate, ive unbent plenty of old CPU pins, as long as they are straight again and fit in the socket, you will be fine.
