Seriously though, I unlatched my heatsink and the processor nose dives off my motherboard from the locked position bending all the pin and breaking one. My question is, if I throw a x4 on there will it be ok?

Yes, though depends if its compatible with your board, i won't explode or fry the CPU.
Just makes sure the new cpu is on the supported cpu list for your motherbd.
