A pin in the CPU socket got bent but it works fine?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Recently I made a pin in my e2140 CPU (LGA 775) socket bent and I just put it back on without fixing it. I was making sure if the computer still works well while the pin (only one) is still bent. The temperature of the CPU was same as last time .
I checked the thread in this forum about fixing the bent pin by using mechanical pen but when I tried to check on the CPU socket, the pin was back to normal! I think this happened because of the weight and pressure of the CPU - it's a little bit heavy even though its small.

Is there still a problem with my CPU? Even though the pin was fixed by the weight of the CPU.
Do I have to double check?


FYI
My CPU temp is 49°C ~ 52 °C (core 0 and core 1) when I'm using the internet. nearly same as the when the pin wasn't bent.

I've had cpu's with a missing pin or two and they worked fine. If yours still works, then it works. Although, If you encounter some BSOD's i would expect it to come from the cpu.

Some of the pins aren't as essential as others, so you can get lucky with bent pins.

If it works though I wouldn't go through the trouble of re-bending it and accidentally breaking the pin completely.

I was rebuilding my rig one time, (I believe it was an Athlon 64 socket 939) and my son came in and knocked the CPU off the workbench. Bent about 80 pins on it. Took me about an hour, but I straightened them all out and it worked fine. If your careful, you can straighten them out and they will be fine if you bend a few.

It could have been a ground/common pin. There are several.
