I ordered the reballing service for an LGA-1151 motherboard with a damaged socket. Repair was quick and the replacement looks and works as good as new. The service was a little pricey, but it cost less than replacing the motherboard, and generated far less e-waste. Communications were excellent, with my being notified every step of the way as the board was recieved, repaired, and shipped back to me. If I had to repair a motherboard again for this type of damage, I would definitely go to PS3Specialist for it.

ps3specialist / Reballing Genius exceeded my expectations on fully replacing the socket of an Asus TUF Z170 S motherboard. The process to purchase the service and then send the damaged motherboard in was very straight forward. After a short period (~2 weeks in my instance), I received notice the motherboard was complete and shipped. The repaired motherboard looked physically perfect, no marring or new marks of any kind. The new CPU socket works perfectly and has restored operation fully. Great work and easily worth the price vs agonizing over manufacturer warranty and issues etc. Highly recommended.
good service = 5 stars
I was not paid for or given any favors for writing this review, as I've decided to go out of my own way to give assurance to any person who wishes to do business with ps3specialist.com. No one wants to just ship off their electronics and have it stolen by some person using a fake website, so I get it, I get the concerns of many given how expensive electronics are, how much of a hassle it is to ship them, or simply the embarrassment of being scammed. Fools learn from experience, while the wise learn from history so keep reading and learn from mine. I sent an e-mail requesting service for my EVGA Classified K Z370 motherboard because, by my mistake, I accidentally bent the pins in the CPU socket. Bent CPU socket pins, generally are impossible to bend back with certainty that the structural integrity is completely restored and mostly would void any possibility of a return or exchange by a lot of vendor websites, even manufacturers. That e-mail was sent at 1:52AM PST (Yes, in the middle of the night) in the hopes that I will get a response some time the next day, probably in the afternoon or maybe even a few days given today's standards of e-mail response times. I got a response at 2:01AM PST. Nine minutes. It took only nine minutes for me to receive a response, and not some generic "Thank you for your inquiry" that you would expect to get, and we should all know what it feels like to receive one by now, but a genuine one written by a real person. In this case, it was Khaled, the owner of this website and the one who did my repair. In short, the repair was done in a single hour, which may concern some to ask, "How would you know for certain it was done in that time?". Well, it's because I actually met Khaled in person at his location and saw the repair with my own eyes. For most, they wouldn't have such an opportunity because of how far they live from him so I took it once I knew he was only an hour away from me so I got into the car and drove. The repair was no cheap hand-soldering job, it was done by machine, and ones that one can easily tell aren't cheap to own and are built specifically to do repairs. In other words, the tools of the trade to do the repairs here are professional-grade and not something an amateur should own, let alone use for themselves, let alone use to service actual customers. There are many people out there, possibly including yourself that has met a person that when they speak about a particular topic, it's easy to tell they have a genuine mastery of the subject material they're speaking about. Khaled is that person when it came to electronics and it's quite easy to tell given the sheer articulation answering all of my questions and concerns on the subject. As for motivation, it's clear to see the passion and love of doing one's work that is getting rarer and rarer each day in this era and I'm glad to see there's still people like him that exist because you have to be passionate to respond with a genuine e-mail in the middle of the night like that. Specifically, the socket wasn't merely repaired, it was actually replaced completely and tested in front of me. I returned home knowing for a fact that my product was repaired properly and of excellent quality as my i7 8700K is being overclocked very hard and torture-tested which would put any repair to the test. This website is legitimate. The owner and repairer, Khaled is EXTREMELY skilled and knowledgeable on electronics and got the job done. From the time I sent the e-mail asking for service to the time I had the motherboard home and fully-functioning: 15 hours. I know those who have to send their stuff from around the world won't get this type of service time, but for those like myself who was blessed by fate of being so close to meet and get direct service from Khaled, this type of turn-around time is unthinkable. When you actually care about your customers, know what you're talking about, and do it with conviction and class, you get customers for life. I live in a society where you're expected to be a man of integrity and when you shake another man's hand, you look them straight in the eye because it's all about reputation that matters and I can tell a man of integrity when I see one. I appreciate what you've done for me, Khaled, and more people should spread the word of your name, character, and craftsmanship.
Re-balling a CPU socket is no easy task; each one of those tiny, hard-to-see, socket pins crammed so close together each need their own little ball of solder without touching one another. AND, there are delicate components surrounding the socket which makes it even more difficult...even with the proper and expensive tools. That being said, Khaled and the folks at PS3specailist managed to bring my ASUS Z97 mobo back to life for a mere $100 (+shipping). I've tested it thoroughly: it see's all four sticks of RAM, overclocks both CPU and RAM as originally did, the PCIe 2.0 lane runs at 16x as it should. It's totally stable with no blue-screens or instant shut-down. To say I am happy and impressed is a gross understatement. This job was brilliantly handled by friendly, considerate techs who care about their work and your hardware. Turn-around times are fast and items are packaged well for priority shipping. A++ in every regard. The best solution by far!
I was amazed how fast the turn around time was and how excellent the quality of work down to the return of the motherboard. Thank you. You saved my 27" imac. It runs perfect. I appreciate your service and will recommend you and will be a return customer myself.
They said "it could never be done". I've also heard "just get a new one, it'll be cheaper". Right....its done, it works, at less then half the price of a pre-owned one from eBay. Thank you ps3specialist for bringing my Asus Maximus V Gene back to life.
The PS3 computer specialist saved my Mac, he is truly a genius of the micro chip! My dead CPU board was shipped back alive and working, amazing service! Highly recommended
my asus rog maxium 97 motherboard had a bent pin socket base. when I was searching and found that website. he replaced a new socket base , sent a fast shipping ! I took a test with my new socket base that already passed successfully. I couldnt be happier. save my motherboard to live!
i damaged my Motherboard Socket Cleaning it, Bent Pins Everywhere the diagnostic seems fatal. "just buy a new one" but i refuse to junk a 300 high end motherboard for a simple physical and repairable damage but the nightmare begins after that "We do not offer this service" "Never i Do That" Also the motherboard company(gigabyte) just ignore me and close all my options to send them to one of the repair centers(Mexico or Usa) so searching in internet i ended here and found that they offer a motherboard cpu replacement.. I ran the risk pay a expensive international shipping(DHL EXPRESS) but totally worth the motherboard was delivered to them and immediately goes for repair 1.5 hours later they finish and ship back fast less that one day for repair this Amazing. i just recommend this for people with high end motherboards that just bent some pins or destroy the socket you can repair it!
