Bent some pins

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I was a little bored today and decided to switch back to my old Hyper N520 cooler to see how it compared to my H70 in cooling my cpu. The swap went smooth, no issues there. Ran the comp for a while and with the N520 temps I decided to swap back to the H70.

While in the process of taking the N520 off the cpu the TIM acted as a glue and bonded the 2 surfaces. I started out real light and eventually put a little more effort into pulling the two apart while lightly twisting the cooler back and forth hoping the TIM will release. Instead what happened was the cooler came off and brought the processor with it. doh.gif Right out of the socket with the locking lever still closed doh.gifeek.gif

Didnt see any intial damage to either the socket or the cpu, Upon placing the cpu back into the socket I noticed it didnt want to seat properly and came to notice 3 pins on the very outer edge ever to slightly bent. Just a hair. I managed to gently push them back into alignment with the other and cpu fell right into the socket.

Put everything back together and hit the power button holding my breath. Powered on fine, passed POST and booted into windows. Thus far everything seems to be alright. My question is, however, is there anything I should be worried about? If something was wrong would it have come up already? Or should i expect to see some issues and plan on a new cpu sometime soon?

any and all help and answers is apreciated.

Always twist the cooler left and right first to prevent that from happening. thumb.gif

My CPU (same model as yours) once stuck to an old Xigmatek HDT-1283 with the locking lever still closed. Didn't bend any pins, but I still had a massive heart attack.

Works fine. If it works I wouldn't worry about it.

I killed a Pentium 4 like that in my younger days. As long as it works now you shouldn't have any more trouble with it.
post #5 of 14
you are good now. if it posted and you are in windows then your fine. people bend bent pins back all the time, no long term damage.

I've bent heaps of pins in my time and have yet to kill a CPU that way.

I've done that, to my 1100t. Also 3 pins, used a mechanical pencil to straighten, everything was fine.

What TIMM? It was the NT-H1 that cemented my old 1100t to the NH-D14.

Learned my lesson, used hair dryer next time around, Oh and I freaked out too, since it came out without unlatching it and all of that.
