Not much we can do, to be honest with you. All you can do is install the cpu and keep your fingers crossed. I read about lots of people that bend their pins that have no issue after straightening them. Why are you replacing the mobo??

I went to the store i bought the mobo, and thay wanted to replace it.. So i'm not going to say no too that ;-).. But now i'm pretty scared if my new cpu is going to be damaged.. Because i turned my pc on with that bend pins on the socket and i readed on some posts that it can damage ur cpu, so i wanted to know that ;-)

I have straightened pins out many times and there is no problem at all. As long as the pins aren't broken you will be fine. Check out the pins very carefully, use a magnifying glass if you have one, and carefully push the pins into place. Then look at all the pins from directly above to see if they are all aligned.
If all has gone well the cpu should slip into place without any pressure at all.

I don't think they realise you've already given the dud board back :D 

You can't know if it's damaged until you try it in the new board. So just try! Let us know how it goes :)  do be careful with the pins, as you can see they are very delicate.

While it is possible to damage the processor from a short I haven't heard of it happening because of bend pins on the board. If you inspect the contacts on the bottom of the processor if it is damaged you may see some markings from where the short was. Otherwise I would say it is fine.
