Why don't you have a motherboard to test it? Did you recently buy this 7700K?

 

If you DON'T have warranty:

- Try bending the edge of the PCB back into place (very slowly, with patience).
- Then test the CPU with some cheap motherboard (which you can return afterwards).

- Make sure the CPU's gold pads make good contact with the motherboard's pins. 

 

Good luck!

There likely (!) aren't any connections this car in the corner, so if the gold pads make proper contact with the motherboard you should be fine. Do indeed carefully try to bend the PCB back into it's original shape. And be more careful next time, Linus. ;)

I had a lot of issues with psus and mobos, im waiting for the good quality ones to arrive :P Also why should I bend the edge, what difference would it make? all gold pins are not touched.

Well I hope I don't mess the cpu up more, and more careful I shall be :)
