I have a Athlon processor from a couple years ago(like 5+), and there are multiple pins broken on it. What can I do with it? Recycling? Could I re-purpose it for something else?
Are the pins broken off or just bent?
They're broken and missing.
You can turn it into a keychain / use as a paperweight / turn it into a hand warmer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bw2p-Dmn48U / recycle it for money probably / figure out how to extract the hold
or just throw away
CPU hand warmer, now that is neat.
