    Yes please do if you don't mind. And be careful while you have the CPU out!!!

    If we don't find any bent pins, then it could either be your settings or use of auto, or the cooler mounting pressure or backplate causing a short (That's why I asked if it also happens with stock cooler).

    Have you tested the ram one stick at a time with Memtest86+? If not please do, and test each one in the same slot.

    You can also test each stick one by one to ensure each works quickly, but putting each in one at a time in any white slot and boot. If they all work in any slot one at a time, then we at least know they are all 3 bootable anyway.

    If you do that test and one stick fails to boot then you know you have a problem stick. If all three fail, try the next slot just in case it's a bad slot. Only use the white slots, one stick should boot in any white slot (Unless voltages are off or faulty stick)

    But you should have no problem just using the first white slot from the CPU for this test, just a quick and simple test to do before doing memtest86+ on each one. When doing Memtest86+, I'd run at least 5 passes on each stick, and see if they all are error free, or have similar errors. If they all have similar errors that could be fine, just wrong settings, but if 2 pass or have way less than the third then you know that is probably a faulty stick.

    How long have you owned this memory, just wondering?

    I'll be able to help you with full BIOS settings once we are sure your pins and memory itself is ok!

    I went ahead and ran memtest for at least 5 passes on each stick and got zero errors. I'm now going to try to take some better pictures and the intel stock heat sink.

    Regarding the ram, I've owned it for 4 months. I got it when building my i7 rig.

    So, I removed the motherboard completely from the case and well instantly spotted some bad spots when looking through different angles at the socket. wouldnt surprise me if its full of bent pins =[.

    I also tried the intel heat sink same issue. middle slot appears to not be working.

    Still I cannot take good pictures! Heres one that shows at least 2 maybe 3 bad spots.

    I'm wondering if i should try to fix which I doubt i can because I have very shaky hands.

    Does anyone know how much does it cost to replace the socket?

    Sorry for the late reply, haven't been feeling well at all today!

    Please take more images, but this time DO NOT zoom in so close. That is most likely why they are turning out so blurry.

    They need not be zoomed in, your camera is plenty good enough that a further away image will show the pins more clearly, plus since the images are so large it will look zoomed anyway when we look at the full image.

    So take some more, NOT zoomed in, and then some more zoomed in about half of what you were doing before.

    Yes, that does look like some bent ones, but those aren't even the ones I thought I might be able to see in your other images. So we need to get some clear images to be sure of any, which I still am not sure of since all the images have been too close and blurry.

    You will have to RMA the board to get the socket repaired, if the honor your RMA you will most likely get a refurbished board back instead as that would be quicker and cheaper for them to do that to resolder a new socket on for you.

    from 775 cpu's

    get the cpu approximately centered.
    lock it down when you think it is centered.
    If you are really worried about a bent pin /vs pads:

    Put a small sheet of thin paper,preferably black for contrast over the base of the cpu
    secure it with insulating tape or similar at the sides, so the paper doesnt move.
    When you think the cpu is centered,lock it down .

    Then unlock the cpu and check that holes have penetrated to all the pads and dont miss the edges of the pads.
    A more definite method is to cover the cpu base with black insulating tape and lock the cpu down.
    Then check if all the pins have broken thru at the right points.
    The problem with that tho is cleaning off the insulating tape adhesive.
    A quick wipe with methylated spirits or alchohol should do it.
    Then again if u do have a "bent pin" it could be very hard to correct ,without getting a double bend in the pin and reducing its height..
    the clearances must be very small with a large number of pins and a small contact area.
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case

    hoping to upgrade to http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/41/habicase.shtml

    Argg, My hands are too shaky =[. I'm going to try to put the camera on a solid surface and see if i can get better pictures.

    I put up a few more pictures socket images

    Check out todays*. Ive taken around 200 pictures now.

    Will Gigabyte take in a bent pin board? From what I was reading on their page they dont typically. Although Ive read for some other people that they have.

    Edit, Looks like I just needed more light? Or maybe not since it seems to erase the issues lol

    on your last image if you look to the far right about mid way down about in between the 2nd and 3rd capacitor looks like there is a bent pin there. wait untill LSD looks but that looks like one to me.

    Hmm, okay I'll see if I can find it on the board. I uploaded a lot more pictures. Looks like I just needed way more light. Luckily I had a desk lamp that I could clamp on to my case. Really helped.

    socket images
