If it is bent the CPU will be critically damaged. A photo would be of great help.

At least on each half of the socket. Like so: TheDarkKnight84 February 14, 2013 1:19:56 PM thank you for your replies especially sakkura for your picture. I installed my 2500k to my new board and all is well now im trying to get a stable 4.5ghz overclock with a 212 evo cooler! thank Angry Bellic February 20, 2013 8:41:33 AM SR-71 Blackbird said:Asrock z77 extreme 4 < mine weren't bent Moderator eh? And I simply cannot UNDERSTAND WHY people are choosing the Extreme4 over the Extreme6? WHY? Sakkura a c 89 à CPUs a c 85 V Motherboard February 20, 2013 9:11:43 AM The Extreme4 is cheaper and has most of the same features. It dumps some stuff most people won't need anyway, like a DisplayPort for the iGPU, a floppy connector, and that USB bracket that is useless if you have a decent case.
