Damaged CPU ?

I recently bought a used Intel G1610/MSI mobo combo. When I recently looked at the CPU, I noticed what looks like damage on the bottom. I've included a link with a photo. Will this affect the CPU? I've only been able to enter the BIOS. I don't have a hard drive or OS yet. When I entered the BIOS, the CPU was recognized. Below is a link of the photo of the CPU. You can see where it looks like a puncture of some sort on the left hand side.

If you are able to enter the BIOS, that means your computer made it though POST, which basically means you shouldn't have any problems. I wouldn't worry about it

Look i wud reccomend u to get the os and hdd
Then install prime 95
Run small ftts test for around 12 hours
This will rigourously test the cpu
If it passes that test there is nothing to worry about

The picture appears to be a slightly damaged pin. I think it's a scenario where it will either work or not work. If the pin isn't connected there's a very good chance that the PC will not power on at all.

Do you know if I could run this test with a bootable Unbuntu USB? Or maybe some sort of bootable Linux CD/USB? I was building the PC to sell (mainly for hobby since I really can't make anything); however, if it didn't sell, I was going to load an Unbuntu OS....didn't really want to waste $80 on another W7 computer since I already have a good one.
