Hi, so a week ago I changed my motherboard. I put my CPU in but the LGA 1155 socket was really tight. I forced it in and bent and even removed some pins from the motherboard socket. I am making a topic because I don't know if I bent my CPU's pins bent in the process

The cpu doesn't have pins. They are just flat contacts. The cpu should be fine but the mobo is fubar'd now.

edit: did you try running the computer with it installed incorrectly? That may have damaged the cpu but even then its not for sure.

No it does not go in incorrect it's pretty newbie proof. I bought another motherboard at 150$ since my previous one was 50$ so there may have been a defect but I was denied my money back. So my my CPU is fine correct? I hope so or my wallet will be pissed
