Does motherboard broken CPU socket pins cause cpu damage?

Hi
Yesterday i had a problem with my computer then i knew from a friend that there is some broken and bend mother board CPU socket pins.
Any way he told me that he managed to fix the bend pins and now the computer works ..

Now there is still some broken pins so I just wanted to ask ,
Does this problem affects badly on my CPU and may causes its damage ?
and will i still be able to overclock the CPU and play games as normal without having a problem?

Motherboard : Gigabyte EP-43 DS3l
CPU: Core2Quad Q6600
and sorry for my bad english

    thanks for reply
    so is there a way to change this socket to a new one or should i have to buy another motherboard?

    The socket is soldered to the motherboard, and replacing it would not be easy at all. It would be easier if you got a new motherboard.
