You are looking at a socket 1151 on a Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3P. I installed the cpu, ram and my noctua dh-14. Wouldn't post and rebooted after 15 seconds, kept looping. Took off the heatsink and put my finger to the chip when turning on, no heat whatsoever.
I sen the chip back since the motherboard was lighting up and beeping, I think this may actually be a rare case of a DOA cpu, but can you guys look at this socket and tell me if anything looks damaged or out of place?

does something there look damaged to you? looks normal to me, unless im missing something.
Wilhelm it doesn't look damaged, but I have no reference for how the pins are supposed to look. They all look bent to me, but maybe thats just how they are oriented?
yea i know what you mean, but its just how they look.
