Oops, bent the pins

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i was taking the cpu out of an old hp and the pis at the end were bent. i thought oh well. the when i took it out i saw the pin pattern is criss cross instead of in row and the pins are shorter than a diif cpu i *handled(pre pentium). the two rows of pins are bent in the middle. i guess needle nose pliers will work.

If you bent the pins, using a mechanical pencil can ease the pain of straightening them. Just be careful not to break any.

I used a safe-t pin on a 3700+ to bend pins back
