I started building my computer today and made a horrible mistake. I broke the pins for the cpu on the motherboard. I got a piece of cloth a bit to close to it when wiping up some thermal paste and it caught on them. I wasn't thinking properly because I was just worried the thermal paste was gonna goop all over the place. One pin got pulled up a bit and some where out of whack, I tried pushing them all back in line but nothing is working. Visually it looks ok but I've probably fucked some connections. It seems like everything else on the computer is powered up, fans are spinning, but there's nothing coming up on the monitor.

I'm pretty upset because that's money totally down the drain. I really just want to cry but I'm trying to brush it off. I'll have to wait and buy another motherboard. Probably a cheaper one that what I had originally.

It seems to be a pretty common problem when people build their own computers. But I still feel ten tonnes of shame.
