CPU Socket Damaged. Got always code FF and cpu Led on.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello i have a problem with the motheboard most certain.

I made a new build. Components:
Tower: Coolermaster HAF-X
PSU: Corsair AX 1200 Gold
MB: Asus Rampage 3 Black Edition
RAM: Corsair Dominator 6GB 1600 Mhz ( 3 stics X 2 Gb each)
HSU: Corsair H100
VGA: MSI NGTX 580 1.5 GB
SSD: Crusial 250 GB Sata 3
HDD: WD 1 TB

I build up the above components.Started the PC and got code FF and CPU led turned on, shuted down made a double check, and restarted.
Got the same. After some restarts, CPU led turned off and DIM led was turned on. Made check on th dim with changing places and more but still got the same. At some times i got cpu led on instead of dim led, really annoying. All this happened the day before yesterday. Yesterday when it started it loaded and i reached the bios, but then it freezed and got it to restart. After i managed to get to bios some times then at a restart point i got again code FF anf cpu led one. and noew it is only like this. I have removed everything leaving only PSU, motherboard, HSU, and CPU and still got the same.

When i managed to remove the cpu from its socket on the motherboard i saw the pins and i think one of them is damaged as it is show in the pic below.

Does anyone have any opinion to offer. I could really use any help here.

Fix the pins with a knife and steady hands.

You mean the pin in the right down corner as we see the pic may be damaged?

Use a razor blade to straighten it up. Be very careful and take it slowly. A thin plastic card or even a mechanical pen will work.

I think i managed to fix it. Made a test and only vga led tutned on as i havenlt installed the vga yet. All run some more tests and all let you know.
For the fix i used a thin knife with a sharp edge straighten up the pin and then i inserted the cpu.
Thank you a lot for the help, both of you.
