I've had that happen to me; my Phenom II 955 survived though. Lesson learned, heat up the paste first...
It's not really the problem with the pins, its more of the security of the CPU. I love Intel's nice latch going over and covering the sides of the CPU.. it makes it all nice and snug. AMD on the other hand.. uehghsdfug

Plus, motherboards are usually cheaper than CPUs. I'd rather have pins on a motherboard rather than a cpu.
And then you can also lap the cpu easier
