1090T - One Pin Is Slightly Bent...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just a quick question. I've got a 1090T Phenom II processor, and 1 pin is bent about 8 degrees starting halfway up the pin. The processor still fit into the motherboard without any problems, but I'm wondering if it will still work without any faults. I have no way of testing this because when I bent the pin in the first place, it was because I was removing it from a broken motherboard. So should is it ok if one of the pins is bent 8 degrees starting halfway up the pin?

if it fits in the socket with no problem, i wouldnt try to bend it. since the bend is halfway up the pin it could break easier. if not...

Bent pins are fine. Use a mechanical pencil to straighten them and a bread tag or something thin and plastic to gap them if needed.
I bent about 30 or so on my 965 after I launched it across my kitchen. Still overclocks to 4.0ghz

Like not a good idea mentioned, I'm worried that it may break off. Because at one time a good corner portion of my cpu's pins were all bent 50 degrees starting at the base. I first used some tweezers but it didn't really work out so well, and that is what caused the 1 pin to bend halfway up. So since I've already monkeyed with it, I don't really want to touch it again unless I absolutely must. I get my replacement motherboard today. Let's say I get past post, and it overclocks ok. Should I have anything to worry about? Do all the pins need to be perfectly straight? Or is it ok as long as it fits into the slot with no problems?

On my old 955, I bent a ton of pins because my D14 was pulling it out of the socket when I unmounted it.

I used a new exacto knife blade to slowly bend the row of pins back into place.

Still works fine to this day!

You should be fine.

They just need to fit in the holes and there isn't much tolerance. If one pin doesn't fit and you don't notice you can flatten it. Just do what I said get them as straight as possible then find something plastic that is the distance between the pins and longer than a few pins and you can gap them all that way. A tag from a bag of bread worked perfect for me also think milk bag tags.

Well good news. I left the 1 pin slightly bent, and installed to mobo, and it got past post just fine, everything is working A-OK. WOOT!

some pins are simply useless on the processors, they just do nothing and are there for the looks, or to keep the pressure even across the chip. This means there is also a small chance you won't even need to unbend it, but since it's quite easy, just takes patience you should do it

Not quite. Alot of pins are for ground (-). And if you know anything about electronics, you can almost never get a good enough ground. It can always be improved.

OP, if its working now, I wouldnt mess with it any more. At least for me, pushing my luck rarely works out well. Try not to be paranoid about it. Run your favorite stress tests and be done with it. And it shouldnt affect the chips OC potential either.

If, however, you cant leave it alone, shop for a pair of those small needle-nose pliers. Prefereably a pair that does not have the little "grip-grooves", dunno if you could even find that. Most of them have a texture molded into the jaws to aid in grip. I'd really just leave it alone though.
