post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Right as i broke my cpu pin and it managed to run power to the cpu
i was told to take it to a jewelers and see if they can attach a new pin and it is there at the moment what do you think to the chance of me getting it back and it working?

dude...sounds like he'll be fine.

But I woulda asked him to make it outta copper to be consistent (unless the pins actually are 14k gold.)

If the rest of the pins are copper, they are probably meant to be copper, but that guy/girl knows his/her metal!

do the two metals you guys are debating about have different levels of resistance? That could definitely pose a problem...
