I ordered mine on Amazon for about $54. Canadian dollars before taxes free shipping.  I have a couple of motherboards socket 1150-1151 that have a pin or 2 out of place I wanted to repair them but I found between a high powered light and a magnifying glass. Both hands already used and couldn't see the pins good enough anyway, so a Youtube search later and  this guy is using a microscope to work on a socket pin repair.
 So I start to price out that type of gear thinking it's way too expensive, cause whatever he's using looks really good. mind you it isn't likely as cheap as what I settled for but some of these really cheap USB or wireless microscopes were starting at about $30 plus tax. and had not the worst ratings. I thought the entry level was going to be in the hundreds of dollars.
 the original one I looked at was about 44 bucks but came with a crappy all plastic stand and base. this one included the better aluminum base (normally sold separately for $34) for only about $10 more.
 I will give a review on how this works out. it looks like a handy tool if you have to inspect anything on a higher detail level.
 This was the video I watched. I didn't check his links or research specifically what he was using. just assuming it was probably a bit more high dollar. (yeah setup he's using is over 600 us dollars from the link). But if I get something that allows me to see better hands free, will be worth the amount I paid.

I have an old MSI LGA 1155 board that had 5 bent pins in the socket.  Owner said he tried to upgrade the CPU and it mysteriously stopped working.  It looks like he dropped something on the socket and bent a few pins.  Took me about 30 minutes with a powerful magnifying glass and a sowing needle to put them back in place.  One got damn near bent over backwards.  I'm lucky it didn't snap off.  I don't have a CPU to test it with, but I am pretty confident that it should work again. 

Trying to fix an LGA socket with bent pins it really nerve racking.

 I know I've done it years ago when my hands were better and my vision was also, but I'm hoping this will let me see good enough. I think it might have been socket 775 I worked on years ago, sockets have gotten denser since. The package should be here tonight.
 Tried it out on a socket 1151 that had one out of place pin (wouldn't boot with 2 slots filled in a channel) would boot with both in separate channels. I still have to try the board again but the repair looks OK. EDIT motherboard now boots with the ram in the proper spots, so looks like all is good. I still have another motherboard to try, will likely be more challenging.

  First 3 are before, last 3 are after. (pics taken using the microscope). Computer screw beside socket in some pictures was for scale.
