Does the bent pins fry my cpu? I accidentally bent my pins while cleaning the mobo, i failed to notice that powered on my pc after that i tried i tried to unbent them and i believe i have done so and tried booting again still no luck, then when i checked i saw some small marks on cpu where the bent pins had came in contact with. So is my cpu fried?

It's definitely possible that bent pins could damage a CPU if it was installed that way.

I had an Intel board with bent pins.
It prevented booting up.
Once straightened, it worked just fine.

That is not a universal outcome.

Bent motherboard pins
Before - No boot


After - boot success

This is what i used, i watched linus' youtube video and believe have done just fine, i dont understand how it would have fried my cpu is all. I can get my hands on another mobo sinc emy friend is selling his old mobo which has the same chipset. But if cpu is fried i am screwed big time

Depending on which pins....voltage going through was is supposed to be ground.
Or the wrong voltage to the wrong pad.

Only way to tell is put that CPU in a known working motherboard.

Yeah i will try that now, but will the cpu fry the working motherboard if the cpu has shortcircuited already?
