putting together computer motherboard pins bent ?
are the bottom motherboard section pins supposed to be bent ?

it looks like they are all angled but the top secton is straight

like the L part is bent all looking the same towards the top right corner and the other side of the L is straight up is it supposed to bethis way ?

RE: putting together computer motherboard pins bent ?
You'll have to describe those "bottom motherboard section pins" a bit more accurately for me to be able to help you. There are a LOT of pins down there.

Perhaps you can take a picture and draw a circle around the section that you're talking about?

RE: putting together computer motherboard pins bent ?
ok where you put the cpu chip in, there is a lever that pulls down etc...

the place where you put the cpu it looks like there are 2 Ls that form a square around it to put the CPU on, however the bottom L set of pins is bent towards the top right, am i explaining it well enough? if still unclear let me know thanks

Oh, you mean the CPU socket.

Yes, the top L pins are supposed to point toward a different direction than the bottom L pins. So what you are seeing is perfectly normal.

actually now that i look closer the top pins are facing the bottom left corner and the bottom are facing the top right corner is this still correct? or are some supposed to be standing straight up

RE: putting together computer motherboard pins bent ?
You open the CPU socket by raising the lever, move back the metal top part, then to insert the CPU, you make sure to the two notches on the side of the CPU with the corresponding part on the socket. You're just supposed to deposit the CPU in the socket (after opening the socket of course), put the metal part on top of the CPU and lower the lever to secure everything. Lowering the lever in place will require using quite a bit of force.

See this guide for more info. In the video on the page, around 1:40, you see how it's done.

Yeah, that's right.

Just about every build guide I've read includes some comment like "Getting the lever into place will require more force than you think it should, and you'll worry you're going to break something, but as long as it's lined up correctly in the socket it'll be fine."

RE: putting together computer motherboard pins bent ?
I wish I had that advice about getting the lever in requires a ton of force. My given advice was "don't force it." So i took like 6 tries and 20 minutes of figuring out if i did something wrong before I eventually, slowly putting more pressure on the lever to get it down.
