Let us know how it goes
So I checked the mobo, and it was fine (besides using the wrong type of screw for one of the holes, but i replaced it so its fine).
After checking the CPU socket, I found that one of the CPU pins was bent out of alignment (pointing in the usual direction, but it appears to be slouching downwards). After checking the internet I found that some people had the same issue as me, and that it's possible to fix the pin.
Can you recommend a safe way that I can unbend the pin?
