So I messed up good on a processor removal and ended up with a useless FX-60. It has a patch of bent pins and I broke one off trying to straighten them. At this point, I gave up and decided to order some sort of replacement. The old FX-60 still works if someone has the expertise to fix some sort of pins on it. I'm not even sure that's possible, but I feel bad letting this processor go to waste. It's a nice processor and served me too well to just through in the trash can. If anyone wants it, I'll mail it to you for $15 + shipping. Not even sure if it's worth that now, but I thought I'd give it a try.

Thanks for looking.

It is fixable ppl...I had a missing pin on my Opty165....a little gold crafting wire, and the CPU went back to 3.0GHz for me!

Bump for a fixable CPU!!!!!! Makes me wish I had kept my 939 DFI now...lol

I'll take pics. Have them up in a moment. Be warned, it's sort of ugly. :(

EDIT: In light of the fact that it's fixable I'd like $25 for it + SH. Still reasonable I think.

It's ok man. There's an ECS board on NewEgg that would fit her build PERFECTLY! DDR + 1 PCIe x16 slot. Now it just makes me wonder if it would support the proc.

Sorry for the double post but, After seeing that pic it's definitely fixable. Would take a few minutes but yes fixable.

Told you it was bad. :(

But yeah, what happened was the arctic silver somehow pulled the CPU out with the heatsink, and being a genius I somehow managed to twist the whole assembly into oblivion. Wasn't my finest hour to say the least.

use a razer blade and a 0.5 mechanical pencil to straighten the pins.
I have discussed the possibilities of fixing it with the OP...he is inclined to sell it and upgrade instead!

Yes, my ignorance lead my to believe it was a lost cause. Since these things go for around $300 on ebay though, this is still quite a steal in the right hands for $25.

And yeah, I don't trust my ability to fix it... It's upgrade time as far as I am concerned.

I don't understand what makes the FX series so expensive...I had an FX-55 and it sold for $150 when it gets outperformed by chips that cost 20-30% less...I understand the FX-60 is the fastest 939 cpu available, but for $300 I'd rather buy a LGA755 mobo and a C2D.

There are only a few FX60's left and people wanna get the best performance out of their old rig. Thats why.

Ouch. Guess we have a new champ. ;)

Thing is, there is actually a broken pin on mine. Complicates things.

I bent the pins on a mobo... one broke off and I RMA'ed it lol

I'd take it for $10 shipped... heh, just throwing it out there

its not just a matter of bending the pins back since one broke... although gold crafting wire or w/e... are the pins really gold? does it matter? and would you have to solder it on or what?

I'd talk to sneekypeet. He seems pretty knowledgeble about the repairs. I'll keep your offer in mind, of course. Just want to let this run it's course.

my bet would be to peddle it off on ebay rather then trying to get a meager sum here

lots of noobs on ebay who would pay quite a bundle... because they'd think that they would be able to fix it
