Thanks for "feeling my pain". Since this had nothing to do with an after-market HSF, I contacted AMD to see if I could RMA it. The problem occurred when I was trying to, gently but firmly, seat the CPU.

I think I suffer from the Klutz or Bull in a China Shop syndrome. redface.gif

What was their response or you still waiting? I feel the pain because I was a klutz when it came to a SATA connector on my old HDD. It broke right off inside the SATA cable connector. So much for trying to make sure I had a good connection... Ticked (not my choice word) me off like you have no idea. Then there was Mrs. Kah. Whirlwind frying pan time on poor old Uncle Kah...

What you'll need is another processor with Gold contacts. See if you can't find out which pin(you'll need a magnifying lens of some sort) it is, locate where it would go in the socket, mark it with a Sharpie dot, pop the rest of that bad boy off your 1090T(fragged pin) and remove one of the donor processors pins with the flat portion.

Since you'll have a lot of pins to choose from you have alot of chances to get it right. Don't sweat it if you can't get the pins to cooperate. Then once you have a good pin gently insert it where it's marked out on the socket.

Seems like a good advice and something i learned from today.
Hope it works out Incurable, GL.

Ceadderman,

Your suggestion sounds very viable and one that I could have implemented back when I was young (Ugh! It really hurts to say that!). Right now, I'm far too Klutzy and far-sighted so I can only seek to RMA the beast.

Kahbrohn,

Will let you know AMD's response. Still waiting.

For what it's worth I have purchased so much product that was either defective or had no instructions for installation and no Tech Support. I can't help but think that there is such a "rush to market" frenzy that it's Buyer Beware time again.

I may be pushing Poop Uphill here but my curiosity (and practicality) requires me to ask:

Can AMD Processors be purchased without that wretched HSF?


I have them piling up everywhere cause I never use them. Kind of strikes me as an unnecessary add-on that only raises the price.

(And, yep, I know that not using that piece of excrement voids the warranty. With AMD, as you have seen though, they replace product with no questions asked - even when it's the end-user's fault!)

They probably throw it in for free when you buy a CPU (shrug)... Now... I'd post them on e-bay. Seems like everyone does and sell then.

Yes you can get OEM Chips that come without the HSF.

So far as I can tell the best OEM CPU available in this config is 925 since it's the best one listed at the Egg. You might take a look at Amazon or some other site that can get something like this. wink.gif
