Pins on Motherboard

Hey everyone,

I just built a new system using an 1155 motherboard. The problem is that when I put the USB connection in the socket I accidentally bent one of the pins, however there was another USB connection slot where I put it instead as the other one was broken. My PC runs fine for about a month now but I was worried that the bent pin in the first USB socket is touching another pin, is there any chance of a short circuit or something like that?

Thanks for your help.

  1. Every chance of a short circuit since two pins are touching. However, its only a USB connection (not a lot of power) and most likely one of them is a ground wire.
    Don't think that it would kill the system or anything.

    Would still pop open the case and try prying the pins away from each other.
  2. ah ok thanks for your help
