X2 4600 Bent Pin :(

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey all. I bought a new CPU about 2 weeks ago. Picked up an AMD X2 4600+

I was running on stock paste for a lil while because i had no AC5 on hand. Lil time went by and I got some. NOW comes the fun part.

Re-Arranged all my wires.....

Cleaned the inside of the case.....

Replaced the thermal paste......

Bent a processor pin putting it back in......



My question is this.


I bent it 90 degrees. TOTALLY flat against the chip. BUT...I didnt break it bending it back ( took time ) Can I still overclock effectively....or should I sell this chip, and buy a new one to overclock?

It should be fine. A lot of pins on processors are just grounding pins. Someone here on OCN had a processor oc'd 1 ghz with a broken pin....lol I would not worry about it.

That doesn't effect the overclocking, it will work fine.

you got lucky lol Ive done this with IDE pins, If it works fine I would run with it, but if your system fails, that could very well be the culprit, Only way to know for sure would be to try and find out.


Edit:


Just noticed

true enough. It's sitting at 2.4GHz stock. I hit 2.85 but never had a chance to prime it. I didnt have AC5 on hand so I didnt wanna run her without it. Now that I have it...Im gonna pop her up to 2.5....prime her for 12 hours.....2.6....prime her for 12 hours....then jump right to 2.8 and run for 24 hours

Good Idea?

Reason I'm jumping around like that is because it's BRAND NEW. Never been OC'd

Like said, a lot are grounding pins. Do you know the location of the bent pin? We could find out what it does.
