Hey everyone,

I bought a secondhand Z68 mobo off ebay, but when it arrived it seems to have a bent pin. Seller said nothing about the motherboard having any damage. Can i confirm if this is a bent pin, and what do i do about it?

Sure looks like it, you have one of two options:
Fix it, using something like a mechanical pencil head and carefully bend it back into place (and hope it works). This has a reasonable level of success usually.

Report the product as damaged (or false advertising) to ebay, they generally take the side of the buyer and would likely get you a refund if you sent the board back.
Was there a picture of the socket on the listing?
