Recently by accident i broke one pin on processor, are there any other options beside throwing it away. Does amd deal with any kind of repair(for charge of course). I am out of options any feedback is appreciated
There are some jewelers/goldsmiths that can do it.
There are some East Indians in town (in a mall of all places!) who sell a bunch of gold jewelry and they did an awesome job sticking a couple pins back onto a cpu for me.
I was really lucky it worked without pin plus I got 4th core unlocked wow, I got 7.2 cpu performance on windows 7. I ran all kind of cpu benchmarks, seems really stable, and it doesnt go over 25c when idle and 30c when under load
I also broke a pin on my 940 and they replaced it as a courtesy. However, during the conversation I was told by AMD that they are a little lenient when only one pin is damaged. If multiple pins are bent or broken then they are a little less lenient.
