I've done it a few times myself when I started using IC Diamond. Warm is best, or if there is room I would put a plastic Spudger (like you use for Laptops) inbetween.

I think anyone who has used AMD chips has done this, funning thing is I don't remember doing it on old intel when they had pins, I wonder if it is more common now with the larger IHS the chips have.

Ya always got to remember to heat the CPU up a little bit and twist off the heatsinks to not bring the CPU with it lol

A tip for the future before removing a cooler or water block run prime or something similar for a couple min this will soften the pate and twist to remove as mentioned.

Yeah was thinking doing a simple stress test for a few mins would prob work instead of trying from a cold start. Computer sits off sometimes 24-48 hrs before I can make it back to using it I think when the new 420 arctic arrives I'll switch it up put the 8 GT fans infront and the 6 140mm fans uptop.

As you can see it's a lil too tight for my liking plus I can finally get to sleeving the GT fans.

Others have said heat and twist which are also good suggestions however there is one that I have not seen yet. Crappy thermal pastes... there are a bunch of thermal pastes out there which are a glorified glue more than a thermal paste not being careful about how much you apply can also change the risk of this happening.

Edit: if you brought that down one slot there would be a touch more slack int he lines

I'd argue that bent socket pins are harder to repair than bent processor pins.

No argument from me on that one, because I know that to be true, from 1st hand experience..... unfortunately.....

I think anyone who has used AMD chips has done this, funning thing is I don't remember doing it on old intel when they had pins,

I had that happen 2 or 3 times, back when I was using P4 on Socket 478, and a few family members were too..... it's definitely disconcerting, but once you realize what's happened, and see that all the pins are still intact, it's not that big a deal.

Ya I kinda figured but I just think its odd more people don't remember those days or are some of us just getting old lol

socket pins are harder but it really something I would like to avoid pretty much all the time 😜🤦‍♂️
