P8Z77-V Deluxe, bent CPU pins right out of box! - Page 2

post #11 of 28
I would actually wait to hear what Asus has to say regarding the replacement before you even attempt to do it yourself. Sure, it's a relatively simple fix if it's only a very small amount of bent pins, but if you mess up... the situation goes from bad to much worse in seconds flat.

ASUS charges $120 standard for ALL socket repairs and replacements. I've personally asked them.

That's what I was thinking, I just may have thought there may have been a difference in Murlocke's situation since it happened in shipping and it's a brand new board with the warranty still in full effect.

Well, if this is true for your situation Murlocke, you have a few routes:

1. Pay $120 or whatever the price is to Asus and have them repair it. Once you get it back from repair, you sell it.

2. Attempt to fix the pins yourself and then sell it.

Option 1 is fail free, you just lose money and make some back.

Option 2 is slightly risky because there's always the "what if" chance, but you lose no money.

Amazon will take care of you if you request refund within 30 days. Hopefully. They have not failed me yet.

I fixed two pins on a 775 board with two push pins. You just need good light and maybe some magnification.

And they may still look bent after some fixing but as long as they're even and make contact with the CPU without touching each other it will work.

Annnnd my guess is that if you sent the board back without some explanation of the way you discovered the damage, they will assume you are trying to get one over on them. frown.gif

Very much doubt Amazon will give you any trouble. They generally have amazing customer service...

why not put the broken mobo in the box for the one you just bought, and return it?

^^ Im pretty sure they inspect returned items

Also I bought a gigabyte z68 board from newegg and it didnt work so I sent it back, i was getting a boot loop issue and slow usb performance. When they got the board they said it had 4 bent cpu pins, which I never noticed and am almost sure I didnt do, and they just sent me the mobo back and refused to give me my money or exchange for a different board. I was pretty pissed and bought an asus z68 and got the gigabyte back in the mail a few days later, I forgot about it and never tried returning it to gigabyte themselves. That was about 2 months ago, I wonder if I could still return it

Hmmm maybe because that's fraud, and they have serial numbers on mobos?
