    Ouch, sorry to hear you had to buy a new one!

    You could have RMA'd the old one (Still can) to Gigabyte and they will charge you for a new socket. But you must call or email ahead of time and let them know you know of the charge for bent pins and socket replacement and plan to pay for that. Then you could at least sell the board and make some of your Money back

    Ya, that does look like you could fix the pin pretty easy, have you tried yet?

    Yeap, a magnifying glass and a needle or razor is what I use. You could also use a jewelers pencil.

    Anything you can think of that small really, just be careful so you don't make it worse or bend another pin

    Good luck, maybe you can fix it and use or sell it
