  3. bent processor question???
2 years ago#1
im building a gaming pc for some freinds of mine, they ordered the parts and tried to assemble it but couldnt so they asked me to do it. But when i looked at his processor i noticed one of the corners or slightly bent, its not broken and is surprisingly stiff and wont really bent back to normal. Again its just a small part of one of the corners but some of the gold connector parts are on the bend.

should i have them order a new one or will it still work?

i cant test it cause the motherboard is sent off for an RMA right now

thanks in advance!!

did they try picking out the dirt between their teeth with it?

They probably dropped it on one of the corners. It may still work, only way to find out is to test it.

Post pics or this thread is useless.
You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.
