Hi

i have just got purchased this board and im worried that the cpu pins on the 1155 socket are bent!

coming from a asrock h61m-vs bkard where the pins point straight up im not sure if i have a defective board.

the protective cap was on and the cpu sits flat im just cautious because i dont want to damage it wben i install a hyper 212 evo cooler.

please advise.

many thanks

As the board had protective flaps i would not think that it would be bent that easily. If it is bent the CPU will be critically damaged. A photo would be of great help. :D

They don't have to be perfectly straight, but they should all have the same shape. At least on each half of the socket. Like so:

Moderator eh? And I simply cannot UNDERSTAND WHY people are choosing the Extreme4 over the Extreme6? WHY?

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.
