What to do with a broken 3900x

While building my pc yesterday I bent about 8 pins on my 3900x. I tried to fix them but I ended up breaking 2 off. I then tired to re sodder them on but ended taking about 8 pins off. I honestly don't know what to do now. Any recommendations?

failing to solder on pins, and in the process destroying more, means you are not able to fix this CPU by yourself. Either hire a professional or see if AMD will give you a refund (doubtful)

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Oh I know it's a lost cause. I was thinking of just selling it.

idk who would buy it but also you can make a cool keychain out of it and maybe sell it for even more than just a broken CPU
