Intel cpu damage

I some how managed to tip over my tower. In the process I somehow managed to bend motherboard pins. Are intel cpus fragile enough that the force the cpu would have to put against the pins could have damaged the cpu as well?

  1. Which pins? Pictures do help a lot. Does the system boot?

    cpu socket pins on the motherboard, no it dosent boot. I had to rma the old motherboard as the bent pins were to bad to fix and now the error code I get (00 (not used)) on the debug screen means DOA half the time and cpu issue half the time.
