    It's possible but if a critical pin snaps then it's game over.

    The ones near the centre of the socket appear to be bent back into the hole of another pin - that'll be a tricky one!

    Would really not fancy your chances of a successful outcome here :(

    So you think the pins would snap during the repair??Is it really a trouble if the pins aren't straight but they make good contact??

    The problem is if they are not straight they usually wander to another pin. The tolerances are tiny.

    Yeah that's true i guess!!How much would you value a Z87 mini itx in that condition(used ones here are at a minimum of 80 euros)??I think it would be within my abilities to repair it...i have done it with 775 boards but i don't want to overpay for something that might not work!

    Probably scrap value £0 or postage costs at best. I would consider that unrepairable and I have done a few of these for friends.

    The outside pins are easy. The inside ones are the critical ones and you snap one board is dead. Assuming they are not already snapped as they look like they are.

    They don't look snapped, but they're bending into the hole of one of the other pins.
    Fixing that is going to be a bamboozle.

    I've fixed pins on a Pentium 4 2.0 that were bent over like that and got it working, it didn't overclock half as well as my 1.8 though, maybe had something to do with the pins.
    I used needles and watchmaker tools, FYI.

    The fact you have this thread duplicated in two different places is a bit troublesome. You're getting replies in your other thread too.

    I've fixed similar, dropped my CPU edgeways onto the pins.

    Get some Uber fine tweezers, a decent magnifying glass, and a whole bunch of patience.

    The trouble ones are those bent in the opposite direction, with them you really have to move a millimetre at a time.

    It is fixable, you have a dead board right now, what have you got to lose.
