Depending on the CPU this might cost a lot more then what the CPU is worth.

Watch ncix's video. Search it on youtube. He tried unbending it but than he broke it XD. I love his videos! He does something after and and fixes it. I don't remember what. I think he just puts it inside the little hole.

If you broke a pin, the CPU may still work, but it will likely be unstable.

Lol, back in the day, when computers were made out of stone, the cpu used to have the pins, not the mobo.

I believe AMD are still doing it lol, I think it's better. I'm buying a 2600k and scared of bending the motherboard pins D: D: D:

But if its on the mobo you don't have to worry about mishandling the cpu, which is the thing that is moving around.

The only thing you have to worry about with the pins on the motherboard is not bending them out of position. They aren't that easy to break but you can move them out of position with the new MB's.

I wouldn't worry about the pin or CPU damaging the PC.
I got lucky-I broke a pin on my Phenom I 9850 X4 and I thought I really blew it. I was so pissed at myself, but I was pleasantly surprised. Evidently it was non-essential and the chip still performs beautifully today.

All you can do is try it and see, but I wouldn't be too concerned with damaging anything, it will probably work or not.
