Re: Broken Cpu Pin
you could still try to see if it works or not. Just hope the pin you broke is an ground pin or something. You can google to see what each pins does.
I dont really know if Intel is like AMD with the connector pins, but when I broke one pin off the CPU of an AMD chip, it boots up fine, but it gives memory errors when trying to get dual channel to work.
