I said "You can EASILY fix a bent blade but not a cracked blade." Bent blade - just bent it straight again. Cracked blade - need to reforged. Which one is easier?

You know not everyone has time to keep taking the heatsink off, clean it, reapply paste and attached the heatsink back on. Lets alone take photos of the pins.

Another update:
I have children coming over tomorrow so I put everything back into the case and run memtest. And it failed. Now need to wait until the children are cleared before anymore testing. And no, I did not forget the standoff since the case come with preinstall and cannot be removed

Back to my original question, BESIDE BENT PINS, what other places should I check on the motherboard? None of the caps seems to be leaking or exploded. What other things I should do?
