    Bios still reporting x21

    having some issues with the front audio detection on F3a... need to check if F2 does the same

    OC'd to 4Ghz over the weeknd:

    @ IDLE:
    TMPIN0:46

    TMPIN2: 45

    @ LOAD:
    TMPIN0: 48
    TMPIN1: 61
    TMPIN2: 52

    Core0 hit 81degrees at LOAD, the other cores were all running at around 67-74.

    Hey, I kind of have a similar problem with the Gigabyte mobo RMA. I had a different problem with the UD5, the RAM slots weren't working... this is the thread - http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/ga-e...tml#post336486

    Someone told me to look on the CPU socket for bent pins. So I did, removed the heatsink, took out the chip, and everything was fine. No bent pins. I was pretty relieved cause the RMA would go fine, they couldn't blame the problem on me because of bent pins. just when I was about to put the board away, my thumb slipped and bent two pins. Awesome.

    Since my RMA had nothing to do with bent pins, can I hope that they simply won't notice the bent pins in the socket? Or should I try to bend them back?

    I read that a good way to do so was to take a mechanical pencil with no led, and use it to bend the pins back. A lot of people have apparently had good results with that, and I'm about ready to try it. Good idea?

    you could try, or with sewing needle but BE CAREFULL,i would leave it if i were you and just rma it saying it arrived in that condition and state that the pins are bent,they should repair it free

    RMA with bent pins is hit or miss, official policy is NO as that is user damage. I have seen it go either way though, all depends on who you talk to and what you say/they believe as previously discussed in this thread

    You could try fixing them, but be careful as they are TINY and thin!!

    As LSdmeasap says, they will need to test after fixing the fault. I'm willing to bet actually that they do a check visually of the board first. If so, they may see the bent pins and just not bother testing any further. That would be justified if the reported problem can be caused by bent pins and if they need to test the board after by mounting a CPU in the socket.

    I know it doesn't help younow but it's always a good idea to keep the plastic socket cover. Some may think me too "over cautious" but I ALWAYS replace a removed CPU with the plastic cover and clamp it down straight away after removing the CPU. I learned my lesson the hard way and destroyed an Opteron 185 by bending pins (Pins on that CPU were on the CPU not board).

    If you are going ahead with trying to bend them back yourself, please use a hair dryer to heat the pins and socket area first. Don't get them too hot, but warm so that they're less brittle and less likely to snap off while being slightly more pliable. If they are pretty pure gold (not 100% sure the exact mix of material, whether they're just gold plated etc) or copper they will respond well to some gentle heating. Emphasis on the gentle. Hair dryer heat can be hot enough to scorch/melt PCB coatings and socket plastic in some cases so please, please be careful.

    Also bear in mind nobody has encouraged you to bend these pins back, it is done at your own risk, info I provide is "for entertainment only", don't try this at home etc.

    ote that they certainly won't accept "the pins were bent when I received the board" because as far as Gigabyte are concerned the sockets on boards are QC checked then capped making that impossible... well.... almost impossible but to them impossible. They have workers in Taiwan, like the rest of the world who want to get home early on a Friday and make the odd botch, I'm sure.

    Yes, they do visually inspect, with a large magnifying glass as well, so it will not slide by.

    +100 on your cover comments Psycho, I ALWAYS do this instantly when a CPU is not in the socket
