    Question cpu pins and zif sockets.

    I'm assuming they wouldn't use them if this were the case, but can reusing or reseating a cpu repeatedly cause damage to the cpu pins (Ryzen btw) from the locking mechanism? Also what is the best way to clean dirty pins without bending them (also on Ryzen)?

    Question Controller to PS/MB

    Hello, I'm wondering if it is possible to connect a temperature sensor to molex or 12, 5 PINs ? It has a Line and Neutral lines out, also it has to be powered by 4-24 V DC In that case, can I plug them directly into molex or sata or even Motherboard pins? Is it save for my PS/MB? Thanks in advance.
