Well, if its slightly bent, you can straighten it out carefully with a dental pick or similar device and some good lighting. I would suggest to remove the CPU and inspect the socket pins first with good lighting to see if they are aligned or not. As long as the pins are aligned or you correct any bent pins, overclocking will not be a problem.

Phew, I just rmad my motherboard because of a dead ram slot, and I'm unsure if it was a bent pin or not.

Will see if it works or not tomorrow.

Opps i was thinking it's the CPU pins so it's the motherboard socket pins?
I knew I should have gone for a high end 1366 motherboard a "beast" of a cpu like i7 990x doesn't deserve this motherboard.

Some cpu coolers will allow over tightening, while most of the higher end coolers use stops to prevent over tightening. I'm not sure about your V8, since I've never used it.

Uneven tightening will also get you bent pins.

Edit:
& your board isn't the problem! I'm using an even cheaper board, and it works perfectly fine.

Actually, I think they say that some coolers will flex the mobo enough to make poor or no pin contacts with the CPU. Either way, there have been people finding bent pins in the same case.

Bent pins on these LGA socket mobos causes some weird and odd issues that you would never think would come from bent CPU socket pins.

So it's the CPU pin that could be bent ? One more thing I do have a confession to make i didn't tell you this thought I didn't need to but the cpu cooler is a
Thermalright Venomous X and it has this nob where you tighten it to add pressure to the bracket and guess what I DID tighten it

I would think that if you tighten your cpu cooler to the point that your motherboard bends, that would be over tightening.
Plus cause damage.

6 of 1, half a dozen of the other. Same thing.

You mean you over tightened it!

Well I tightened it but wouldn't say i over done it. But then again I say when there's no memory ram in the 2nd blue slot PC starts up fine I tried it several of times and restarted several times the PC starts up 1st time and doesn't shut down ..... so if it was over tightened or a bent pin then it should not be doing this right when the memory ram is removed?

Also is their a chance that when i flashed my bios with the latest version everything went to defualt for example I had to change the ide mode to ACHI mode because that's the mode my windows was installed on, So am thinking maybe reinstalling windows would this help in any ways?

The computer will work fine with DDR in several slots. You have to keep in mind, if you have a bent socket pin, its probably the IMC circuit for that DDR slot. That's why you have issues when a DDR ram is inserted.
