    Default Cpu socket replacement

    Just thought id post details on how to get your cpu socket replaced if you have exhausted all possible channels with retailer and manufacturer,some manufacturers flat refuse to repair customer induced damage regarding cpu socket pins,however gigabyte i have to admit are pretty good regarding this,just recieved a direct replacement 1155 cpu socket but in the end it wasnt needed hence i thought id start this thread to help anyone else out in a similar situation,you can buy whole cpu sockets brand new from fleebay and depending on where you live in the world most accomplished pc repair or reballing firms can replace the socket for you at a cost,im only quoting from within the u.k,and the cost was 70 inc postage so bare that in mind with the cost of the board ect,i did haggle the price down to 50 so maybe you could try the same,if anyone does need the link for the repair firm i asked then pm me as i dont want to give free publicity

    ill post some pics out of interest for anyone needing this help as i found it pretty difficult in sourcing/finding anyone willing to carry out the repair




    above is the rear of the socket with all the tiny balls of solder attached




    and here is the side where you insert the cpu,with no bent/broken pins

    can you post some pics of the socket pins like i have above? just wanna see how many and how bad the bent pins are,i havnt actually used the firm for repair yet so i cant comment on their workmanship,ive just been using the board as it hasnt affected it with a mising pin,however i do have another damaged board that needs socket repair

    you need to buy a spare socket from china too,ill try and find the link

    should be simple fix,does the mb boot up as it is? theres only two pins slightly bent,you wont need the whole socket replacing imo

    I agree, those can be fixed fairly easily it looks like!

    Just be careful and steady handed and you'll get them back into place! Use a metal tipped mechanical pencil

    before

    after

    after

    one of the pins is about to break off its so weak,lookslike someone else has attempted repair? idk but i think it will break off if messed with or cpu in and out a few times

    if it does break off in transit or when you put cpu in dont worry it could be redundant pin,im using same board with a missing pin and it runs fine,if not then ill link you to have whole socket replaced
