    I broke two of the pins from the back of a CPU and I am not sure if it works. My guess is that it doesnt but I dont really know. I have not been able to try it because two of my new motherboards misteriously stopped working, A 875P NEO from MSI and a ECS-848 motherboard. After this happened I bought a new CPU and one of the pins got bent but I fixed it. Will that affect anything. Really appreciate your thoughts.

    If you got the pin staightened out it should be ok. You either need to learn to be more careful with your CPUs or stop messing with them at all.
    I don't mean to be rude. I am just stating the facts. This could get to be very expensive.:(
    The one with the broken pins is surely trash.
