Fixing bent pins on a CPU is delicate work that needs skill. Whether the pins got bent by accident or something else, it’s important to be careful and know what you’re doing.

We’ll use special tools to check how bad the damage is and fix it without making it worse. Sometimes, we might need to replace parts to make sure the CPU works properly.

The staff at Steve's (Johnathan and Vincent) were quick to identify the issues with my CPU cooler and CPU. They promptly fixed the problems and even went above and beyond by helping me organize my storage drives for optimal performance.


Just after I got my Macbook Pro back, I had an issue with my brand new PC build. I spent 2 months getting frustrated trying to troubleshoot and solve the issue on my own. I took it in to Steve's. He recommended a new processor, and within a week, I had my new PC build running with 0 issues!


Steve is a really cool guy. I screwed up my PC by installing a new CPU. When ever my PC spits out errors, I can usually fix but I met my challenge. My PC was fixed with an SSD and clean install of windows 10 running faster than ever. Steve offered me a gig working on an Arduino project he needed help to make a LED lighting system. Great collaboration. 🙂
