Help Me Find the CPU PINS!

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!

  1. Are you sure it's the CPU? Not your RAM or anything?
  2. what motheboard and cpu is it, and try reseating the ram and the main motherboard power cable also
  3. Pins look ok.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  7. Magnifying glass steady hands and some jeweler's tool and slowly bent it back into place.
