Bent Socket Pins - Page 3

post #21 of 24
It's not totally fubar but you're going to have to be very careful getting them bent back into place properly. It looks like a screwdriver or something was dropped on the socket at some point. Hopefully you'll be able to get it working again as I've heard it's possible, I just wouldn't want to deal with that myself personally. Good luck to you. thumb.gif

I bent a pin on my LGA 1155 without knowing it. Put my i5-2500k back in and turned her on...it cycled boot, no post, no windows. I was like EEEEEEEFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF... I didn't realize I bent only 1 pin till after I took out the CPU. Found it, used my trusty carpet knife and just bent it back till it looked like all the rest, walla. Goin 4.5GHz as we speak. That was about 3 weeks ago too... Shouldn't be difficult. Just good steady hands. Don't have coffee right before either...lol mmmm coffee sounds good

this one


Not a bad deal for $48 though it does look like you'll have your hands full. I've repaired a few boards with bent socket pins. I had to eventually RMA one with MSI of whom charged me $35 for the repair fee (got me a new board). Figured it'd be fair.

Good luck!

I accidentally dropped my processor into the socket (blame my sister who bumped into me when I was putting the processor in) and it bent 1 pin. I took a very thin pair of tweezers and a .05mm mechanical pencil (so that the pin would slide in through the opening) and moved it very slowly. Constant pressure, then release, then apply pressure again. Don't try to force it.
