1157 socket in P8P68 PRO motherboard

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Love the i7 processors engineering becaue the pins are on the motherboard... rather see someone has desimated a motherboard at from 80 to 250 for a moderate priced gaming board, than mess up a 250 to 500 dollar quad processor. For those who have completely lost their minds smile.gif and actually have sockets with bent pins... ( how does one gently set a processor in the socket which has to sit between the noches in the processors board.. making it a no brainer.. ) Got a board where the processor was bad and plugging in the 8 pin connector on the board caused a crackling (short ) and disabled all the outputs from the power source but the mother board 24 pin. It blew a solder joint on the back side... little tiny solder blob on the foam pad I had the counter top as I was trying to figure out what the problem was... fla on one side... and blobed on the other... SUCKS... to be me...thumb.gif
The board was only 60... so a throw away... who cares... but saw a new board on e bay that had broken pins but also came with a replacement socket.... anyone replaced the socket before...? how tough of a job is it?

I suggest avoiding that "replacement" and just get a new one. Simple as that.

Made me smile... no real reason to invest a few minutes learning how to do something or finding out if someone else has been able to do it... or even if it is possible... for those who have had this experience or are, as am I, interested in seeing if it is easily done... Could actually go out and buy a new gaming tower from your thought, and forget about building a better mouse trap as it were...
Can't be as tough as putting a clutch in a car, wiring a stereo system, or engineering a pan/tilt/zoom controller for cam systems... I mean... I have several soldering irons... 15 watt, 30watt, 45 watt, with all the accutroments... solder sucker, micro tips... which do you think I should use on a motherboard...?
Made me smile man, thanks for sharing...
