If it is bent the CPU will be critically damaged. A photo would be of great help. | Report abuse Reply to Angry Bellic Related ressources ASRock Z77 Extreme4 (blank black sreen) - Forum Asrock z77 extreme4 gen3 dr.debug 00 - please help! - Forum Asrock Z77 Extreme - Bent Pins - Forum Can I power on an Asrock Z77 Extreme4 motherboard without a CPU ? - Forum Cpu cooler on intel asrock z77 extreme 4 - Forum Ask the community Publish SR-71 Blackbird CPUs Authority Motherboard Authority February 13, 2013 12:23:35 AM Asrock z77 extreme 4 < mine weren't bent | Report abuse Reply to SR-71 Blackbird Sakkura CPUs Expert Motherboard Expert February 13, 2013 12:31:36 AM They don't have to be perfectly straight, but they should all have the same shape.

And I simply cannot UNDERSTAND WHY people are choosing the Extreme4 over the Extreme6? WHY? | Report abuse Reply to Angry Bellic Sakkura CPUs Expert Motherboard Expert February 20, 2013 9:11:43 AM The Extreme4 is cheaper and has most of the same features. It dumps some stuff most people won't need anyway, like a DisplayPort for the iGPU, a floppy connector, and that USB bracket that is useless if you have a decent case. | Report abuse Reply to Sakkura SR-71 Blackbird CPUs Authority Motherboard Authority February 20, 2013 3:45:19 PM Asrock z77 extreme 4 < with coupon from the egg cost me $99.00 free shipping | Report abuse Reply to SR-71 Blackbird Angry Bellic March 2, 2013 5:08:26 AM SR-71 Blackbird said:Asrock z77 extreme 4 < with coupon from the egg cost me $99.00 free shipping GIMME THAT!!!! | Report abuse Reply to Angry Bellic Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Asrock z77 extreme 4 are the cpu pins supposed to be at an angle?> Related ressources: ForumZ77 Motherboards: ASRock Extreme4 , Gigabyte Z77X-D3H or MSI ForumAsrock Z77 Extreme4 won't get past boot screen ForumASRock z77 Extreme4 Not booting ForumAsRock z77 Extreme4 -- I need your help!
