Can I fix a broken 6600K where somehow one gold contact pad felt off the CPU at maintenance?

Can I fix a broken 6600K, where somehow one gold contact pad felt off the CPU at maintenance?

2 years ago i did a system maintenance and somehow one tiny gold contact pad felt off the CPU, I think it is not supposed to happen very often, my guess is bad soldering out the box.... (I'm experienced in PC building, yes I did every step at reassemling the PC correctly). Back then I bought a 7700k for replacement, still my daily driver.

Since then it was sitting on the shelf, now at quarantine times I thought maybe somehow "bring it back to life". (still a capable chip for web and everyday work tasks)

My guestion is, can I somehow repair this chip, to let my parents use it in a cheapo build? (to replace an old first gen i7)

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

(I don't really have any experience in soldering at all)

linus did a similar video about this but with a ryzen cpu, maybe use his video on guidance or use another video of the internet of someone doing this

Ryzen has a different pin system though but still a good point though

Please quote or tag  @Ben17 if you want to see a reply.

If I don't reply it's probly because I am in a different time zone or haven't seen your message yet but I will reply when I see it ?

There is no easy way to fix it. You could possible put something there to make a connection. I'm not sure if you've tried, but the CPU could still work, but it would be at risk of breaking the motherboard.

From what I can tell looking at the LGA1151 pinout, that pad isn't necessary and it should just work (looks like its the unassigned pin beneath "CFG_R COMP").

I already put it in my TUF Z270 MK2 board (latest bios) what i use for the 7700k, and it does not post at all. Red CPU error code on the LED.

Nevermind, I through this was a pinout for the bottom of the processor, not the socket. It's actually VCCIO, which might be a needed pad. You might be able to bridge to the other VCCIO through the two unused pads using a conductive pen, but I don't guarantee anything.
