Hello Tom's Hardware.

I have a friend that tried to build his pc, and he bend round about 10-15 pind i the cpu Socket so he call me and i got the pc to start it was totaly dead and gave CPU error on MLB. (Tried to bend them back and got i to start but the cpu only uses 5 % of the i7-8700 Cpu) so i call him and told him get a new MLB because he cudent wait more.
Now the pc works verry vell after i change the MLB and put back the pc,

So now my quistion:
He gave me the old damage MLB its a Asus B360-F Gaming so now i wont to heat out the damage socket and replace it, but the socket is a LGA 1151 V2 and i can only find Skylake and that is a V1

i know they have made more power pins and ground but is it still 100 % same socket ???
or do i need to find af dead 8 gen MLB from my workplace or can i ordre the skylake socket ??? :)

Sorry for my english im danish and its a long time since i wrote in english :p

Your only real solution is to send the motherboard to ASUS for repair.
I might guess it will cost $50 for a socket replacement.
That is what it cost me for a gigabyte repair.

I think it is likely not worth the effort.
