Sure, just use the tip of a mechanical pencil

EDIT: Though be very careful or they could break off if you work the pins to much

Use a propelling pencil end to slide over the pins and gently pull them straight. If some snap off it may not be the end of the world, many pins are not connected or just provide redundancy.

If some pins do unfortunately break off, just get some bread tie wire and put it in the corresponding hole in the CPU socket. The bread tie acts as a replacement pin.

Didn't know this was possible lol. thought once the pin is inside the socket, it would be too deep down inside to get contact on the cpu?

Yep, put the end of a mechanical pencil and re-bend it.

If you break it and use the bread tie wire like Riou said and it works, make sure to post pictures because that would be so deliciously ghetto

to see if they are straight look down the sides of it, so it looks like a corn row or something. then u can see how out of line they are.

Just make the length about the same as the real pins. Part of the bread tie should still be showing through the pin grid array (PGA) socket. Then just install CPU normally.

I broke a pin off my old Phenom II 955. I kept getting a 'new cpu installed" error message every POST. I installed the bread tie wire into the socket, and the error message went away.

Sure, as long as you don't break one it's an easy fix. Fixed a friends mobo that way, I did find it nerve wrecking :S
