    Can you not bend them back? I have done this many times and one needs must just take care and use a magnifying glass with tweezers.

    I dought it, since the bending of the pins is not their fault


    just bend them back with caution, its only 4 pins

    You can use the tip of a Mechanical Pencil to straighten them, just slide the pin inside the tip and slowly bend them back. This is unless they are bent at a sharp angle in which case you will be out of a CPU.

    For slight bends a mechanical pencil works really good. For sharp bends a razor blade does wonders, expecially if all the pins are in line.

    bent pins are NOT included in intels (or for that matter any other CPU manufacturers) warranty.

    Try using pliers or a credit card to bend them back..its your only option.

    If they break, you can try inserting the pin in the right hole and putting the CPU on top of it.

    Jack, if you break off the pin and then manually insert it into the socket it will probebly work as it has for many people.
    But if you are ,as you say, going to sell it then it might be a problem.

    FIXED. I have spent the whole time trying to get it. I fixed a pin, another bent and so on. I almost had it, used a little forced and boom, it went in. Yippe!

    10 bucks says a pin broke, and all of a sudden all your multis are unlocked! :-O

    That would be sweet
