When i take the cpu out in the socket there is one socket that feels differen to the rest of the pins so i think it is that causing the prolem

Thas it, the bent pin is the issue! Replace the mobo and on that note, check the CPU and see if the pins/contacts have any damage. At times like this, both cpu and mobo could take damage.

I am sorry to hear about the bent pin/ pins. I hope you fix it without adding more money to your build.
