Default Re: I'm Sick

You are pretty much in the same situation I was. I had about 5-6 bent pins, not very bad except for one that was about a 120 degree bend. I managed to get most back into place with a small sewing needle (it was the exact width of the space between each row of pins) but the REALLY bent pin ended up falling off but the computer still works (although for some reason I can't run Dual-Channel ram anymore)

just take a pair of pliers and move them back Its not that big of a deal actually. If you break the pins, just RMA the processor back to the egg.
