Help fixing FX-4130 with bent pins

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I recently ordered a FX 4130 from a member here and when I received it there were several bent pins. When I contacted the seller he instantly refunded the price of the chip (before I could copy pics from my phone and send him) and now I'm going to attempt to fix the cpu and then work out something with the seller.

So here are some pics. I know in the old days a 0.5mm mechanical pencil would straighten the pins but these pins are super hard to see. Pics taken with my Note 2 so sorry if hard to see

Packaging ouch

Has the seller claimed that the produc twas damaged from shipping? If so, has he contacted the shipper?

I used a credit card or a thin hard plastic scraper/putty knife.

He asked for the pics and was going to claim for shipping damage but the way it was packaged is more likely the culprit. I have no idea what he's planning to do.

okay, so i dropped my new fx-8320 last week, heres what you do:

Take a credit card, place the edge in a row of pins and delicately slide the card through the row. it should move the pins back into position, be careful though! when i did my first run i bent a pin even farther over than it already was! I would say slide the card one direction until you have moved all the affected pins away from that direction, then come at them from the perpindicular direction. you should be fine. after an hour of work i was able to drop my 8320 inton socket and it worked perfectly

This ^^^^

Metal parts are affected by heat, so if you if move the card too fast it will generate heat and it will broke, but if you do it slowly theres no problem, make sure to move them carefully and its all good.

Above is right slide it one way and then the other. Use two cards one either side if it helps

Its best to start on a non damaged side then slide to the damaged side, some leaning of the card should be done too until the pins are perfectly straight. if necessary, take a small knife and use the blade to straighten the pins a little first until the card slides through them. being gentle an patient is the key. don't Hurry!


Edit: the blade, if used, should be backside down. Keep the faith brother! thumb.gif
