    Exclamation Bent CPU Socket Pins on ASRock Z77 Extreme 4. Is it possible to replace socket ?

    While cleaning the board, few CPU socket pins got bent and I took it to ASRock service center in Hyderabad (F1 Info Solutions and Services) and they denied to repair giving me the reason that they do not accept any out of warranty board for any repair/RMA.

    I even sent one email to ASRock support and it seems they're not bothered to reply.

    Later, I tried to straighten the pins using needle and started the system but no luck


    Q1: Is it possible to replace the socket ? And does the mobo work well after replacement ?
    Q2: Is there any other authorized ASRock service center in Hyderabad ?

    P.S. Currently Z77 motherboards are not available on any online store in India, except Amazon and that too the costs are too insane so have to search the local market.

    Q3: Is it a good idea to buy INTEL DH77EB ? This board is Currently available on Amazon (1 year warranty) and TheITwares (3 years warranty)

    Q4: Should I go for the latest chip-set motherboard ? and In that case which mobo, processor and RAM would you suggest ?

    Q5: According to my current config what all upgrades would you suggest which least for at-least few years.

    My config is in signature

    you can goto motherboard chip level repair centres (non authorized ones), and see if they can replace the socket.

    if they can't or don't have spare part, they may purchase ur mobo at a cheap price , if they are willing. then you can look for new board.
    geeky world of fandom.

    One of the guy from other service center told me that after replacement, success rate is very less on these type of boards. I think I might have to sell this at a cheap price.

    Recently, I saw few following Z77 motherboards on OLX and QUIKR:

    1) ASUS Z77 V-Pro (Owner is not replying ) ₹5500
    2) ASRock Z77 Extreme 3 (8+3 Power phase) - ₹4500
    3) ASUS Z77 M-Pro (6+2 Power phase) - ₹6300

    During a lightning strike my previous Mobo pins got bent and MSI replaced it with a new socket. It worked flawlessly since I was fortunate that the Mobo was in Warranty and I didn't spend a dime on it. Asrock Sevice Center in Hyderabad is having very bad reputation. They don't even take boards which are in warranty saying that they have physical damage. In fact, they can take your Mobo by levying an extra charge by replacing the socket but they are too lazy to do that.

    That's so true. I called these people once again and they advised me too visit CTC Bent CPU Socket Pins on ASRock Z77 Extreme 4. Is it possible to replace socket ?

    AND Should I go for the used ASUS P8Z77 M-Pro @6k available on OLX.

    Just one question: why were you cleaning pins of the socket in first place?! and even if you were doing it, how?!

    I was cleaning the board and by mistake I forgot to close the CPU socket with dummy header.
