One Pin Bent on CPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an AMD Ryzen 5 3600, and when I removed it from its socket, I noticed that there was one pin bent. Will this cause the CPU to not work? Should I try to bend it back?

IF you are lucky its a nonessential pin, if you are unlucky it's necessary for it towork. Try and boot using the CPU and see how it goes.

My words of advice:

Don't buy Cherry Browns.

Don't play Overwatch. I've hate the game yet I play it every day.

Silence > Temps for Coolers

Get a good PSU

If it's a GND pin it should be fine. If it's just about any other pin your computer probably won't POST without it.

 

How bent is it? If it's not terribly you can usually bend it back.

if it's just a ground pin or a nonessential one then it's fine, you can try booting it up and check, if something is wrong try to straighten  it.

You can try bending it back careful. Worse case scenario you could try following the second half of this very old Linus video:

If it's one of the pins around the golden triangle, you might be in luck. Otherwise, try your best to bend it back into shape without breaking it off. Good luck!

A little trick I learned once for bending pins back into place while minimizing additional damage. Grab a mechanical pencil and remove the lead from it. Insert the bent pin into the end and straiten it.

 

It's a little more full proof than needles, thumb tacks, or pliers.
