Its a LGA775 Socket Mobo
and i dnt wanna pay 60 bucks for repair(you all guys know who im talking about for those who have had problems with the company about bent pins)

BUT!


the pins dont look severe and i tried my best to POSSIBLY put them back together

all im saying is
is it alright if i put a processor on it(Becuz the pin isnt touching other ones so no shorting the processor...right?thats what i heard)

Pics are here on the bottom

Some say to use a mechanical pencil to straighten them out by putting the pin in the tip and gently straightening... I've never tried this but I've heard it works

here are the same EXCEPT if you cant see it from the top pictures,i edited them with circles that have colors(a colored circle means its that one)You might need to zoom in close on it


EDIT:blankthis,i heard that as well but its only for processors that have pins on them(AMD,old school 478 etc)but i NEVER heard of it working on the mobo pins :/

well keep trying to fix them, it wont work unless they are correct, you could distroy your CPU as well so don't try it until its fixed

otherwise if you can't fix them you will have to buy a new motherboard or RMA it, if they let you
don't risk the CPU with broken pins, you could destroy allot more then just the motherboard

i can understand how annoying that is, but think about it, do you really want to risk damaging all your other computer parts as well?

so yes you will have to get a new motherboard

because if you put ur CPU in, and it short circuits
then everything is gone so play it safe and buy a new motherboard

Find some dirt cheap cpu you could try in there. Celeron? Maybe get a used one for $10-20, who knows. But really, if it was me, I would just make absolute sure the pins look like they will contact the correct "pads" on the cpu. Once I was confident they will, I would place the cpu in and out of the socket a few times to make sure the pressure of the cpu doesn't move any of the pins around again. If the pins stayed in location, I'd do the final install, and finally give it power.

its not only the CPU it would destroy, if it wasn't properly put back it could short circuit the entire motherboard, and thus taking out everything connected to it, maybe even the power supply

that's why i said just get a new motherboard
