I tried to install a MB in my PC this past weekend..somehow I damaged the socket-not sure how..
See the pic..

Can a MB manufacturer just replace this one part? Anyone have any idea how much it costs?
It is a Gigabyte board.

I don't think you can fix socket pins on the MB by yourself, I'm not sure if Gigabyte could just replace the socket, and I have no idea how much it would cost.

Looks more like a burn mark then bent/broke pins. What happened?

As for replacing, no. You'd need to get a new mobo.

Could be the Foxconn P55 CPU retention issue.

Possible. Have the RMA/warranties changed to accommodate this problem?

It is weird..I am not sure how the mark got there. I never ran the CPU hot and always put it in correctly-only time the damage could have happened was when I was installing the heat sink-I had trouble getting it in.

Ever run your memory above 1.65v?
