I have an FX 8350 that is missing 2 pins on the outer edge that seem to deal with memory. I have been looking for the proper stencil for this cpu to replace the pins but finding it impossible. Anyone know for sure where to get the stencil ?
This company seems to sell various types of Stencils. Maybe they have what you are looking for: https://beamon.com/
The FX 8350 are not that expensive anymore. I found one at Newegg for $105.00.
Why do you need a stencil to reattach 2 broken pins on the processor? Not familiar with repairing broken pins on a processor which is why I am asking.
By the way, AMD Warranty is voided if your processor has broken or bent pins on it.
Thanks I will send them an email. I live it canada and bought it used online and all the pins are perfect except 2 missing. almost looks like they were never there.

Missing pins can be repaired if carefully soldered back into place. I have repaired a lot of electrical equipment over the years and while density has increased, the basic soldering is still present.
I fixed a few dead iPhones with damaged u2 (PM8018) chips. These are 6x6 BGA.
So to remove the device I had to heat the logic to be able to remove the damaged part. I prepped the pads with some rosin and placed a new improved u2 chip, warmed it up to melt the solder.
Reconnected the screen and the phone powered back up with a charger. Zero to rich with 10 minutes of work.
