Bought a second hand 5900x off a guy on facebook marketplace. It was priced at MSRP plus tax, but not suspiciously low or anything. I met the guy at his business, I know who he is, he was not shady, etc. However, to my dismay, 3 of the pins on the bottom left corner of the cpu were bent. It took me 3 or 4 tries to seat it properly. It seems okay so far, I have played a few games of apex, temps are normal, etc. No crashes. How screwed am I? Am I okay?

Lol. You're fine. 

Playing games with the cpu is a good thing!

Sometimes the pins bend really easily. I'm sure it happened when no one was looking. 

 

Glad your rig works, Game On!! 😄

It should be fine.

 

Linus famously had a broken CPU pin and simlpy threw it inside the socket and the CPU on top. Worked without any problem and I think is still running to this day. He mentioned it a few months ago in a WAN show.

 

But you should keep in mind for the future that those pins were bend. With every bend they will become structurally weaker and at some point might break.

Why I like LGA a little better.  I've dropped many Intel cpus and just said to myself, "Eh, what's for lunch?"  lol

Problem with LGA is the tiny pins on the motherboard. They can bent just by you looking at it wrong.

Queue De8uer killing a $800+ ThreadRipper motherboard on video, when the CPU holder failed, and dropped the CPU onto the socket.

🙃

 

 

You could've carefully straighten the pins with a credit card / ruler + mechanical pencil / tweezers.

Then put the CPU into the socket.

Basically pre-straighten the the pins, and then use the socket to further re-align them.

That sounds like outstanding results actually. Good cooling.

yeah as long as the pins are straight'ish when you pop it in you're usually good. I've bent the shit out of a bunch of pins over the years since i always build team red. pins bend sometimes, i use a knife to run through there and straighten it out and never had an issue. now if its crazy far bent and you try to move it back and it breaks off you might be totally screwed depending on how it broke but that's another issue for another day. usually they bend back easily

I never bent an LGA socket pins.  Probably because I leave the plastic shield over it until I'm about to drop the cpu in.  🙂
