Im sorry but this is user error, you can not be made at newegg. When you remove your cpu be sure to lift directly up back and forth or side to side is NOT your friend.

No just a tedious job i remember a couple years back some guy bent like 25 or so pins and bent them all back. Only took about 4 hours i think haha

I bent my 1055T's pins after the utter crap that AMD has the guts to call 'TIM' stuck to the processor, and ripped the CPU out of the socket with the heatsink still attached, even with it lowered and locked into the socket.

After panicking for 10 minutes and attempting to bend the pins back with a steady hand, I prayed to god it would still work.. which it did

Maybe if you send the board to Gigabyte they will be more forgiving, but New Egg isnt gonna pay for the user mistake.

Well I'll get over it but the point is seems a little more than unfair that due to a honest accident I'm out of both a refund or board as far as neweggs concerned. If there was no recall Id have no reason to take it out and would still have a working rig. Incidently where does it say WORKING board lol. It's a faulty board out of the box per Intel so why should it matter? I dont even want to hear about refurbing. They still have to fix the damn chipset so whats the bfd with fixing the cpu mount? I cant imagine that my mistake is going to affect the bottom dollar....So I suppose Ill get ahold of gigabyte and see what they say.....

Just for good measure:

Any product that exhibits physical damage

Gigabyte's policy:

and your point is?

you damaged the board yourself
unless you can bend the pins back your outta luck buddy

take this as a lesson, when removing LGA CPU's do it slowly and don't rush and push it down on the corner to pull it out
