I try with Intel Celeron G1610 CPU with no luck. Is there maybe any other CPU that can work with this broken pin or i need to send it to reballing?

Thank you, and sorry for my bad english, Phillip

well, if you dont mind waiting a week or 2, rma it. if you want to use it now, then try to bend it back, its not that bad, should be easy. also, if it is a reserved pin, the cpu will still work without it just fine.

I don't mind waiting, but i live in Montenegro and i don't have a warranty, and i think there is no official Asus shop around. I bend it back but still not able to reach CPU. I found mobo repair shop (only one in Ex Yugoslavia), it's around 50 euros to replace socket, but before send it i just want know can i solve it on easy way :)  Thank for fast answer anyway, i will wait few more days to see is there any other solution, if not i'll send it.

yeah, i would keep bending it, because even if you do break it off or something bad happens, you can go get the socket replaced.
