Processor Problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So my friend has this motherboard: AsRock

I have a PH II 945 AM2+.
Is it supposed to fit at a weird angle? If a pin gets bent can I rebend it and everything works A.O.K?

945 is AM3 and what do you mean weird angle? It will only fit one way. Yes you could unbend.

Weidass is right make sure you're not confusing 940 and 945.

If that CPU is AM2+, it will not physically fit in the socket. AM3 CPUs can fit in an AM2+ Board, but not an AM2+ CPU in an AM3 board. The AM3 socket has 2 less pins than an AM2+ board. I'll bet you have 2 bent pins If you can bend the pins back, the CPU should still be ok.

If it is indeed a 945 then the CPU should fit as a 945 is AM3 and so is the socket on the board. If the CPU is a 940BE then it will not work in that board. As previously stated though, if one or two of the pins are bent, they can be bent back to position the CPU in the socket.

EDIT: Do you have a pic of the top of the CPU as well as the pins?
