LGA 1150 cpu socket is missing one pin. Is it impossible to work with? Odd problems as result

Through idiocy I managed to bend multiple cpu pins. There was one that was much more flatten then the surrounding ones somehow. Anyways it either has embedded itself into the motherboard or broken off (I did not see any pieces though). When i first tried to boot up the cpu after bending the pins it didn't boot. Then i made some progress returning pins to their rightful place and it tried to boot and failed. Next it would boot fail, then reboot itself in a continuous cycle.

Next I removed the ram as I was doing more work, forgot to put it back started my computer and it booted up normally and ran. How, I'm not sure, but it did. I returned ram to slots I've always used it in and it was giving me issues again. I removed 1 stick (of 2) from the first slot and it booted fine. Also the remaining slots also cause no issues. I would just accept that and move on but there's a bigger problem. The rear I/O ports do not work anymore, so therefore I have no usb, display ect. Now even if the ram works in other slots (it will also occasionally work in the original slots).

I have straightened back bent pins,with the exception of the one missing. Is it really possible that that one pin controls the ram as well as the I/O ports all by itself. Also I plugged my keyboard into the front usb ports and seemingly nothing happened as no lights came on, but my mp3 player gets charged through them (I have on off charge). I have just recently built this and was waiting for money to finish with a gpu and this happened. Can't really afford a new motherboard right now, but don't want a giant paperweight either. I've spent all day working on this is there anything I can do?

The motherboard is dead. The CPU might be too, but might not.

Would it still boot and receive power and whatnot if it was dead? And how exactly did it die?

A broken off pin can lead to additional probems throughout the mobo, if ander warranty might look into getting it fixed, else start shopping for a new mobo ;)

All the pins are important, and send power and info back and forth. Missing one=death. It could have also shorted the CPU, killing it.
Yes, some motherboards will power cycle even when damaged.

Ok well how likely is it to get it fixed under warranty? I've had it for about a month or a month and a half and gigabyte warranty is 3 years, but I'm iffy about their coverage.

Depending on what I do with the ram, it won't shut off at all that's what really puzzled me, but I guess I'll just give up. Very depressing.
