MSI X58A-GD45 - Bent USB 3.0 pins on board


I have a MSI X58A-GD45. It has 2 x USB 3.0 by USB 3.0 Bracket that plugs into the mother board.
The problem is that it's really difficult to get it in. As I was plugging it in I bent the pins on the connector that it plugs into. The connector is soldered on the motherboard.

It's too difficult to unbend the pins ...only a couple are bent but they are bent all the way down.
I was thinking maybe I could find another connector somwhere and solder it on the board.

Anyone have any ideas on what I should do?

  1. It should be easier to straighten the pins than replacing the connector! Other option would be RMA but what are you going to tell them?
