Default Athlon XP CPU pin problems

So, have a bunch of old Barton core 3000+ and 2800+ cpus that i got for free from work as the IT guys bent the pins while pulling them out....was hoping to straighten them out and maybe get a few i can sell on ebay. Just wondering if there is anything else other than straightening the pins i should be doing to clean them up and get them working?

Default Re: Athlon XP CPU pin problems

As long as there is nothing you see that would interfere with the connection of the CPU no the only thing you need to do is straighten them. Also lightly vacuum out the sockets on the motherboards.
