If I bend back a few pins of processor it works again right?

    Hi! I have a AMD Ryzen with extending pins like any other AMD, and I accidentally dropped it very lightly on my table and from what I can see very very few pins bent just slightly. Then I bent them back very carefully with a small pare of tweezers and it appears to be bent back perfectly in place. The processor hasn't touched anything with any sort of electricity. Will the processor work just as well after this or am I screwed? Thanks!

    If it still mounts properly, you're probably OK, but it's a good idea to do a Prime 95 stress test and a Memtest86+ test just to be sure.

    BTW, bent pins can be more easily straightened out using a mechanical lead pencil with the lead removed. Simply slide the pencil over the pin and gently straighten.
