So I recently just upgraded my CPU heatsink for my i5 2500k, I was running dual channel Corsair Vengeance memory no problem. Once I completed installing the heatsink I discovered the PC would start then restart over and over again with a few second intervals between and could not get it to POST. I then had a little fiddle round swapping over memory modules to see if that would help but nothing, so I removed one module and I got it to boot however seemed unstable and would freeze on the Windows desktop. Later I removed the new heatsink to check the socket pins and I noticed one was snapped in the lower section closest to the inner rim. So really I would like to know if this one missing pin can be effecting the DDR3 controller?

The pins are on the socket though not the CPU so it would make no difference. I'm actually using it right now its just the fact there is a missing pin on the motherboards CPU socket is leading me to believe its effecting the DIMM slots.
