Straighten out the pins , I did over 40 pins that were bent on my 1090t , works fine now . I used a 5mm mechanical pencil and jewelers screw driver to straighten the pins . These temps are at what , idle , stressed ? 60 for AMD pII up is not good , even stressed , near the limit .

It was idle but now its at 30-35 degrees Celsius, and the small piece of cotton is still in that motherboard socket and if i try to take it out i might bend more or brake pins. Do you think there will be static shock damage?

it is a intel core duo e7400 @ 2.80 ghz
