I suggest you contact Gigabyte about repairing the CPU socket. I'm pretty sure they do this sort of thing. Probably have to pay for it, but it's way cheaper than a new motherboard.

Mounting coolers does not bend CPU socket pins. That is done when installing CPU onto socket. You probably know this, but just so others understand.

Just tighten until screws stop. Trying to get them too tight ends in grief with broken screws.

I am checking with them; they are just not responding though; I will be glad to pay if it can not be repaired under warranty.

I actually did think that it happened due to mounting of cooler; so you are saying that if CPU is correctly installed any amount of pressure will not cause it? I am new to 1150 platform; though I worked with many LGA 775 build and never faced this bending issue.

Thanks

From what I know mounting coolers doesn't damage the CPU socket pins. Something coming in contact with them before CPU is installed or CPU being put in wrong is what most often does the damage.

I have never damaged a CPU socket installing a cooler .. but I damaged a CPU socket when installing the CPU .. and the pins get mashed when closing the CPU mount. I bent pins once when my shirt sleeve brushed an unprotected CPU socket. Luckily I noticed it before installing the CPU and was able to straighten the pin .. otherwise it would have mashed the pins and probably destroyed the socket.

Where are you located?

This could be the case.

I am in US, bay area.

No idea who could repair it for you. Hopefully someone else will know. Maybe post the question in the motherboard forum.

Gigabyte is repairing the motherboard out of warranty which costed me 45$ + 14$ shipping; this is almost 50% of the board cost.

RMA tracking is not very responsive and IMO it is better to keep checking with them over the phone. Hopefully my PC will be up and running soon.

Maybe next time consider an ASUS board instead. I also bent mine and they replaced it for free thumb.gif

I will not consider a Gigabyte for sure. I mean I don't mind paying if its not covered in warranty but the pricing is absurd.
