Chris_1234 Can anyone tell me how did I band those CPU socket pins with protective cover. Is it even possible? I just learned that my RMA was reject ed because this. Be careful.
Chris_1234Thanks startekselva for your kind offer. I will try to fix ti myself. I watched a few videos on u tube and if pins are not broken I will band them back to their original position. I see that probably happen. Socket is in shape of rectangle and this stupid "protection cover" is a rectangle too and has four tiny legs. Rotated 90 deg from what should be and tiny legs landed when my banded pins are. EVGA designed perfect trap for their users. No instruction how to install this "pins smasher" was provided. Warranty is over and I stick with damaged motherboard, without accessories witch should come with it + full price for second board.Happy Easter everybody.
