The heatsink mount shouldn't be overtorqued, at stock without any pressure mods you really shouldn't have a problem. To test contact try to put some pressure on the heatsink, hold it down against the board with light pressure and see if you boot ok.

Who said you can't RMA a mobo for bent pins, I RMA'ed a motherboard that had bents before with asus and had no issues wtih it.

Comps
They deny RMAs or charge for repair on bent pins left and right. You got lucky if they didn't care about your bent pins.

What DIMM slots have you tried it may not even be a CPU pin issue.
With SB's built in mem controller different pins are for different channels and the odds of bending pins for both channels is not that high. I have not seen a full on schematic of the cpu to memory path so I could be mistaken but it sure makes sense to me.

i've tried booting with both sets of slots and it will only boot from that 1st blue slot closest to the cpu
