So long as the pins weren't broken you are fine, but I'm like PimpSkyline. I would be OCD about a brand new processor. I just got an 8350 and if it had bent pins it would have been RMA'd quickly. biggrin.gif Glad it's working though.

I had a similar issue with my FX-8320 caused by the heatsink sticking to the processor. Went to take the heatsink out and the cpu went with it mad.gif . Luckily only 1 pin was slightly bent. Bent it back and now it's running like a champ. I'd say your fine.

Ewww. Had that happen on some Intels, but not on my AMDs with zif sockets. O.o Be ware, be ware the processor comes!

Yeah, the heatsink was glued onto it. Idk what happened but the thermal compound that was on the oem unit feels like plastic now lol. Too much heat maybe??

Same here. I had a Phenom II 965 BE. I wanted to replace the stock heatsink with an aftermarket one. When I removed my stock heatsink, my CPU came out with it. I had 2 pins bent. I bent them back and it ran perfect for the year I had it before I sold it off. So I wouldn't worry too much OP.

It dried out. You need to replace the thermal compound. The stuff on my 8350 dried out really quickly after I did a quick out of case component test.About 6 hours after the components were removed and resealed the oem thermal paste was hard as steel. I keep new thermal compound so replacing it wasn't an issue.

I already did. Only planned on keeping it on there for a few hours until I got my watercooler put on. Didn't know that would happen. It did turn to steel lol. Lesson learned.

Good... Yeah I don't know exactly what they use, but it is some tough stuff. Since mine dried up before my final build, I replaced it.
