A bent pin will not drop into the socket. Many of my older CPUs have off-kilter pins and as long as the socket accepts it the board will post. I've had dozens of AM3 boards and built countless machines for clients - never had an issue with a CPU and a slightly bent pin. The ZIF socket clamps onto each pin with a gripper made of conductive material - if it fits into the socket it will make contact. It's most likely a blown CPU at this point. The sabertooth probably hit it with too much juice.
did you try to reset your bios? when CPU changed that should be done first
is your PSU able to handle that CPU? are all power-connectors plugged in?
Seriously??? I know you are trying to help but maybe check my rig first to see pc specs
and if the connection was the issue why would it boot up and run on the 8350 but not the 9590?
Bios been reset several times in the process
fx8350 sips 145W from socket and fx9590 sips up to 265W from socket so it CAN be your powersupply... or mobo; or faulty cpu
Ok once again I have a 1600w EVGA gold power supply powering 2 290x lightning's and 2 R9 fury nitro's and how can the power supply be the issue?
The FX 8350 is working fine in the mobo too
