can't put in in my system as i have no thermal paste
Test it and you will find out
It may be fine, it may be dead
You can use toothpaste as thermal paste if it's only for a short period.
The pin is there on the official AMD photos I could find, I can't find an actual schematic pinout to work out what that pin is for though, best bet is to plug it in and see.
ok found out the broken pin is metdata or something now my plan is to find where the pin ould go intoo the motherboard and stick a pin into the motherboard so wen i put te cpu in it will touch ?????
try it with toothpaste and see what happens.
should work according to some threads i remember reading a while ago....here's one:
no harm trying it
They can be soldered on again, i've done it on a few cpu's (P4's and AMD socket 939's).
Isn't that dependent on location of the pin? Pins near outer edges are easier.
Cut a small pice off a staple, put it into the socket so that about 1mm sticks out, then mount the CPU.
Done it before, no dramas.
Just don't make the staple pin any longer than it has to be otherwise the CPU won't fit all the way into the socket.
Pins near the outer edges are easier, but some of the pins I have soldered on were not on the outer edges. It is very tedious, but it works.
ughh...wrong thread. I should not post before coffee
