Bent Pins!

Redfern

Hi, okay so the other day I was testing out all my parts for my new pc and I went to put the plastic cover back on to protect it and accidentally bent one pin in the top left of the 1150 socket. The CPU and board still work just fine and U was wondering if everything will be okay for when I build the PC on Christmas, thanks.

Lol I have the exact same thing happened to me. Just try using tweezers or toothpick and re bend the pin.

Don't be fooled by the bottom line of my sig, that is just for my travels.

So you're telling me that Gaben is no God? Enough of your foolishness.

My hardware you ask? I'm using a Dell Inspiron 3217 Notebook... With an LG 25UM57.

You can try bending it back if you wish using tweezers. Can you show a picture of the bent pin?

Just get a pair of tweezers and pull the pin back into place.

 

A pair of tweezers helped my CPU back grom the brink.

When in doubt, re-format.

Sorry not at the moment but I will tomorrow and post on this thread, should I attempt to bend it or leave it as its not causing a issue as I think it still makes contact? Thanks

Leave it as is. If everything is working fine, it's safer to just leave it. If you break the pin, you cannot send it back.

You could RMA, leave it, or fix it.

 

If you attempt to fix it you can use the metal tip of a ball point pin, it will fit over the ends of a pin and allow you to bend them back out without breaking it. Hopefully that is still feasable with some of these new OC sockets that have smaller and more numerous pins.

 

Chances are it will work with a bent one without any noticable issues.
