Noob: Bent/smashed pins? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I remember building a sandy bridge pc for a friend. i dropped the cpu on the pins bending some of it. fixed it for 5 seconds and good thing it booted. it gave me a good scare lmao

There at a angle so they have a force to push the pins against the flat contacts on the back of the CPU

Perfectly fine, but it freaked me out too when I got my 1366 rig 2 years ago

Hmm, interesting. I never noticed that on my board. What scared me was the amount of force required to secure the cpu. It was way more than an AMD cpu required. I swear I heard creaking when I was locking in the cpu.

I was also a bit confused when putting together a sandy bridge computer for a friend. I was used to seeing pins on the processor, not the socket. And the amount of force needed to clamp down the zif socket was shocking; I was almost certain that the motherboard was defective.
