Have you tried RMAing to AMD ?

Bent pins can quite often be fixed. It's the 1 pin missing thing that I'm not to sure about. I'm sure if you don't want to deal with it, there's probably a member here who might need it that has the no-how to fix it as well.

I'm always up for a challenge! Let me know if you don't RMA this, I'll take it and post a How-To if its fixable.

if for some reason everyone else decides not to try to fix it, I'll take a stab at it.

Use a mechanic pencil to fix the bent pins. Stick the pin inside the tip of the mechanical pencil and bent it back into position.

Also, I have seen many people that are missing pins on their processors, and for some reason, it still worked. Try it out and see.

I wouldnt advise trying it out just yet.. Who knows what that missing pin does, it could fry the chip, or destroy some other hardware. Ive personally used the mechanical pencil trick, it works really well. Make sure to use a .5mm pencil, those work best.

Ive heard of people putting the broken off pin into the socket, then putting the chip inand having it work fine, but Id be very careful about putting it in without the pin it needs.
