I have a broken cpu pin (completely broke off)

Ok so a couple months ago when i was buying parts for my first rig i broke a pin off of an AMD FX 8120 8-Core black edition. i have a stand in processor right now (FX- 4100) and if AT ALL possible i would like to see if my broken processor would work so i dont have to drop another 200 dollars on a new processor.

TL;DR- Broke a pin off my cpu (w/ the arrow at the upper right hand corner, pin side, the broken pin is the fifth pin from the left on the very bottom row)

If anyone can provide a link to a pin layout map that would be awesome, also, im open to sketchy ghetto-fied fixes.

  1. Send it back to AMD, it is under warranty.

    Even if the system boots with the broken pin, it may be highly unstable and will most likely crash on a regular basis. You cannot repair the pin.
  2. Check the pin map for it CPU and figure out what pin broke off because not all the pins are used.
