  1. Im a lil worried and i did a search on the forums.

    Is 3-4 pins near the edge of the cpu at the tip with the triangle icon. Is this something to worry about?

    I straightened them out with my fingernail tips and they look prety strong and arent about to break off.

    I put it into the holster and it seems to fit well.

    Should I be worried and return it for a brand new one?

    Or forget about it and it will work fine?

    As long as no circuitry on the chip was damaged, you'll be fine.
