Easy fix. They're all on the outside row. Mechanical pencil and take your time.
Yep.Those pins looked more like some putz yanked it out of the socket badly.
Excellent! We are in the clear... I used a credit card and mechanical pencil to reverse the damage and align the pins. AND IT POSTED! So that's a start.
NO SPOILERS here you will see what I'm doing so when I get the results real time, I will share them here. So far, we have it unlocked to all six cores and running it at stock speeds to get a handle on stability. I'm going to then activate a CUSTOM P-State and see if we can overclock this puppy!
EDIT: Up to 3600Mhz across all six cores! I'm gonna call this a partial win already but not getting my hopes up yet for 4.0Ghz!

Knock that NB frequency back to realism. Your clocks will get better. There is no replacement for raw MHz. NB frequency is secondary.
My NB frequency is only around 2600-2800 over 4 gig. At 3.6 it'll go over 3000.
Seriously storm winter is coming get a rad, pump and a block and stick it outside!!!!!!!! You'll be amazed what even 6c water temps will get ya. I've seen -15 water temps on some good nights and you're north of me.
Same here Scotty. Some of my older hardware is a lot more fun to play with. Plus blowing up a $20.00 chip doesn't hurt much, though I have been lucky. My favorite chip is my 955be, that thing just takes a beating and asks for more.Exactly.
Not for nuthin but, I live for generations behind hardware. They're more fun.
My Skylake system just sits in a box.
