FALSE ALARM. TURNS OUT THAT, I THINK IT IS OK. I DID NOT REALIZE THAT IT TOOK A BUNCH OF FORCE, AND I THOUGHT I WAS BREAKING IT. I CHECKED THE SOCKET OUT IT MIGHT HAVE JUST BEEN THE LIGHTING IN THE ROOM FOR THE APPEARED "BENT" PINS. THANKS EVERYONE FOR REPLY'S

or am i wrong and did i break it? lol i kept checking if the pins were moving when forcing it down, but it looked the same the entire way, i kept going little by little til i said screw this and clipped it in.

Wait until you're completely calm. Bent pins in an Intel board is VERY dangerous so again, I recommend waiting until your hands stop shaking and then when you are calm enough, use a mechanical pencil or tweezers to bend the pins back into place.

I don't know the best tool for unbending, but i would suggest just waiting to do it, maybe even overnight, to you aren't nervous when you do it.

Yet, you don't know which pins. Mind us if we can have a picture?

I thought only AMD used pins anymore .

LGA 775, 1156 and 1366 have contact points on the CPU and pins on the board's socket.

The processors are pinless. The 1366 socket on the motherboard is the one with the pins.

Yep, I concur. Had the bent pins on my P5Q pro and just used a needle which fixed the problem. Everything is all g00d.

I prefer wooden toothpicks; they catch on the pins better and make manipulation a bit easier.

When your unbending them with one hand hold that hand with your other hand. This way it will shake less. Or place the hand your unbending it with on the side of the case so it shakes less....I do this all the time when handling expensive equipment. If you unbend them and the rig doesn't start call Intel and blame it on them that they sent a faulty unit.
