My brand new parts shipped. only for me to find that the pins on my 3600 shipped bent. Upon the retailer's failure to replace it, I straightened the pins. I straightened all the pins but one broke off, but i decided to try anyway. It didn't post and no mobo post-code lights turned on . However, I have a 2300x from another build, so I swapped it to see if it was the cpu. It also didn't post, with the mobo post-code lights indicating a RAM error. I have verified that the RAM works fine. Is it the 3600 or the mobo? I can try putting the broken pin in the socket and booting like that. HELP!!!!!!
