    i still have a 440bx board like that laying around somewhere, getting those cpu's in the slot was always alot easier than getting it out

    Sheer talent. I'm special. :-P

    Seriously though, my guess is that it happened when I was wrestling with my CPU cooler.

    My dad has a saying in Afrikaans which roughly translates to "If you use enough force you can even break off your finger in you ass hole"
    If you are building a PC, and you have to wrestles with hardware and press it that hard... then something is bound to break.

    Wrestle may have been too strong a word. I was speculating that what MIGHT have happened is that the pins bent while I was attaching a stock Intel cooler [cue laughter and incredility] and don't always get all four of the pegs locked in position and turned the right way at the same time. [By now will already know that I'm not great with my hands.] I try to lift the cooler to test that it is securely attached to the motherboard, and it may happen that the cooler is a little loose.

    I think I'm going to look for a replacement for this board. I have already put up an ad. on Carbonite. [I see that there are a couple of other people who have done so too, so I have competition. Now its a matter of waiting and watching.

    Worst case scenario is to look at used H/Z 87 and 97 board, where I would obviously also have to replace my CPU.
