Hey guys I just got all the parts in for my new build and once I got everything put together start it up and get error 76 (pch dxe initialization) I tried taking everything out except what is needed and still won't post. I even took all the ram out which I thought should throw a different error and still 76. I flash my bios to the latest and that didn't work. When I took my processor out I noticed that I might have a couple bent pins I'll include a picture and the suspect pins on in the top left corner. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have the MVF myself, and if that picture does it justice those do look bent. Where and how long ago did you buy it, some places will exchange it if you just bought it, others will refuse because of user damage.

I have heard of a number of people being able to use a mechanical pencil and magnifying glass to straighten them.

Just got it yesterday Idk how I could have bent three pins and I got in there with a light and they are definitely bent I will attempt the magnifying glass trick and see if I can't straighten them out
