New Ryzen came with a bent pin

My ol' Faithful is having power delivery issues and I just ordered a new build and the CPU came with a bent pin and wouldn't sit flush. I managed to get it fairly in line with tweezers and with very little effort get it flush in the CPU socket.

Since this is going in a loop I now have to be bothered to find a heatsink to test it before a rebuild my loop to see if I successfully salvaged this or not. Would I be a total fool to have faith and just yolo build it and hope it works?

I yolo built the whole loop without testing the CPU and everything worked fine, no hiccups.

CPU is saved!

I would have done the same thing. I bent one once and just took a nice pair of needle nose and re-bent it back in. That Proc lasted me until I sold it so. Good to see it worked out for you.
