Faulty Motherboard

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got a Gigabyte P55A-UD3P, with a bent CPU pin. Got a new mobo ages ago but now this one is just sitting around. If i put it on ebay would people actually buy it, or is there a place that buys them, or is it just not worth it?

Thanks smile.gif

How badly is it bent? I know some people have fixed bent CPU contact pins.

If you advertise it as a motherboard with a bent pin I bet you will still be able to sell it provided you don't overcharge

And if you've owned the board for less than 3 years you can RMA through gigabyte

Its like 1 pin, i tried myself to unbend it, but is way too small and just gave up haha. Oh really, ive only owned it for just over a year now i guess, how would i go about doing that?

You can fix bent pins, it just takes patience!

I had about 15-20 bent pins on one of my old 775 boards that were bent almost completely flat. I managed to fix them all with a knife, a bright headlamp and a whole lot of time!! biggrin.gif
