When you have a dead MOBO and CPU and you super cringy

Recommended Posts

To whoever did that:



In all seriousness, it looks somewhat salvageable. As long as the pins aren't bent and you can clean up that thermal paste you might have a shot.

I'm not liable for anything that may happen to you and your PC if you decide to follow my advice. Take everything I say with a grain of salt, some things may not be correct.

So a friend and I run our own "basement" tech service. We had a dead Dell MOBO and a i5 2400. Then we had to realease the cringe.

It wouldn't work anyway even with that thermal paste on it, those socket pins are bent to hell.

Totally. There isn't really a reason for it to be installed like that. A 2 year old can take shapes and place them in the right hole, I don't believe for a second that a person would actually install a CPU like that without it taking the piss. 





OP if you want it more believable next time, I would install it upside down in the socket and then place the thermal paste on top of that. Bonus points if you manage to crack the substrate!
