I used the one that came with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118046

I can't check right now, but I'll post tomorrow the exact brand name.

I hope you didn't give them your serial number...if so..its already on a black-list.

As for the thermal paste, if there is a bit in the socket it should be fine.

its really the only thing you can do... and if you will have to buy a new board anyways, you may as well at least try it

and you might want to try and use the fuzziest cloth you have with a dab of rubbing alcohol on it and repeatedly run it over the bottom of the chip without applying any presure (this tme it doesnt mater if it is a microfiber cloth)... before you use a cloth though, make sure it will not leave any lint

EDIT: didn't see that it wasn't edited
Slashed it out because my first suggestion wasn't something I recommend but I still wanted to put it out

If its an mPGA socket, unbending pins with an empty mechanical pencil (.5mm) should be easy as they are all straight and on the CPU, however ive never had any experience with LGA pins being bent, but im sure (especially on a denser grid such as 1366) it is probably quite a bit trickier. one of the reasons i prefer LGA sockets is because its much more difficult to damage the pins (you wouldn't handle a whole MB the same way you handle a CPU). and as such i have never seen an LGA system with a damaged socket. you can try to unbend them but be very careful not to let the tool you use touch any other undamaged pins, or it wont do you any good.

I'm going to try to clean up the socket and straighten some pins with some tweezers later tonight, and I'll report back. Thanks for the help everyone! I hope I can fix this myself without hating myself for messing up a $200 MB.
