I have (had :pfff: ) a p8z68-v pro. while cleaning motherboard, towel fell over the cpu socket, and when I picked it up(pins was stocked in the towel), realized that socket pins are crooked :cry:  :cry: 
tried to fix some of them but it is so hard without special tools.
Anyway, what should i do? Is it possible to only change the socket or is this condition fixable?

Try contacting ASUS service, but I don't think that it is covered by warranty.

If they are not too damaged, you can try straightening them. Check on Youtube for how to.

Tweezers, straight pin, lots of light, magnifying glass, steady hand and lots and lots and lots and lots of time and you can fix them. Done it a few times before.

Grab yourself a mechanical pencil, remove the lead, make sure it is clean. and use it to straighten.

Good luck.
