Hey everyone,

I think I got jipped on this motherboard because I can't seem to boot. Can anyone help me find the messed up pins please? I can't figure out what's going on! I attached pictures with multiple angles, hopefully these help!

Are you sure it's the CPU? Not your RAM or anything?

GA-X58A-UD7 with an i7 920 I have tried everything. Using the ram on another 920 system.

The problem was that the computer booted once when I first built it, it was from another overclocked build so I turned on optimize default settings or whatever, restarted. Booted fine. I left for a day, wouldn't turn back on. If I pulled the CPU power out I'd get it to load but not post ya know, fans spinning, etc.

Checked pins I found one that was kind of off but I think I did a decent job of fixing it, placed CPU back in. Won't turn on at all now. Lights flash, no power.

Since its a watercooled build I figured it might have been a leak somewhere, CPU was around 26C so I don't think it overheated or anything. Tested CPU on a different motherboard as well, worked fine.

I just finished scrubbing the board with 91% rubbing alcohol so we will see if it could have been a leak or something, I don't know, I just want to this board to live!

How did you go about fixing it?

Magnifying glass steady hands and some jeweler's tool and slowly bent it back into place.
