    Hello everyone,

    Today i noticed high temps on the cpu so i Decided to change the paste.
    I opened it up cleaned the old paste, installed new one and put everything back together and as soon as i hit power switch, the fans moved and stopped.. I knew then and there that the psu's short circuit protection is preventing it to boot.
    So again i took Everything apart and found that maybe a couple of pins in the bottom middle section have bent.
    So i tried to pull the pins using a fine needle then put everything back and it booted but no display only red cpu error light was on, but the cpu was getting hot.
    So somehow i know that the processor has not died ( thats what i hope).

    Now I cant tell is it the processor or motherboard that needs RMA

    If the bented pins are on the motherboard's cpu socket as I assume, then it's motherboard.
    And in that case there is no rma as bented pins are user's fault.

    Replace your PSU dude, you've made several threads already with too many issues to count.

    Now there's a chance you screwed yourself by messing with the LGA pins.

    Sounds like time for a new motherboard now.... Judging from the other thread I saw, looks like time for a new motherboard, graphics card and PSU.....
