    I wasn't testing a different CPU, it was the same CPU in a different motherboard. And it turns out that my CPU is missing the center pin. 4 days old, not covered by warranty. I found the pin after really scrutinizing the CPU socket on the motherboard. You have to look really closely because it just looks like the no-pin plastic.

    I'm so not happy at this point.

    Negative.

    Pins aren't covered by AMD warranty. So I'm up for another AU$120 processor just to see if the motherboard is actually broken or if it was the processor all along.

    is the broken off pin still in the cpu socket? youll need to remove it if you get another chip,even if its not covered by warranty surely they could repair the pin?

    I got it out with a pair of tweezers. It was like the solder simply gave way on the pin. And I only RMA'ed to the retailer. I'm going to take a look at AMD soon. See what happens there. But I don't have high hopes.

    God I hate the internet in this country.

    Just emailed AMD. Waiting for their reply. I don't think my chances are great, and I have to buy a processor to tied me over anyway, so we shall see.

    Good luck with the RMA, sounds like poor manufacturing to me as it would be hard to break a pin off in the middle of others without damaging more than one.

    They should be able to easily notice that too, and honor a RMA for you

    How the hell do you knock that pin out through physical damage? (Look 6 down and 5 in, hard to miss).

    That's what you need to look for Disciple. I think you may find something similar.

    i think with the right soldering iron you could put a tiny blob on the end of the pin and push it back into the chip with some tweezers,it would be hard though being so tiny
