I have an FX 4100 with one broken pin. It was bent and broke off when I straightened it out. If the arrow marker points to 12 o'clock, it is at 6 o'clock where there are three pins. The one on the right broke off.
Is this under warranty?
If not, I'm thinking about using a piece of copper wire to connect to the socket. Any other ideas?
Some pins aren't essential from what I understand. What purpose does this one serve?
