    I noticed when installing my new mobo one of the pins was slightly off, I could see it wasn't quite lining up right if I looked from a low angle. It wasn't a huge deviation but I managed to get it back *almost* straight to the point where you can't see it's off just by eyeballing it (In fact, I thought it was perfect until I zoomed the pics). You can see the tip isn't quite in an exact line in the images. fixed 1.JPG fixed 2.JPG

    Looks ok?

    Looks to be a PCI-Express related pin. If nothing seems off I'd say you're GTG.

    Thanks! I’d seen the pin out diagram and thought that’s what it said but I wasn’t quite sure, it was pretty lo res.

    Nah I'd give it a test run if you haven't already.

    I’ve been using it even before I bent it back slightly, seems ok, but I know with bent pins issues can sometimes be subtle.

    Looks way better than some of the ones I have repaired.

    Throw a cpu in. Run some cpu benchmark tests and test all the ram slots.

    You should be fine overall.

    And yours were all good? Nothing weird popping up at a later time?

    Nothing. As long as the height and the overall location is correct, you shouldn't have an issue. I bent one in the right spot once and had issues, until I realised I didn't have the right height on it and it wasn't making contact.

    I could take some pics of way worse ones for ya that work 100%. Yours could easily pass as never repaired.

    That's what I was thinking. Looks like new.
