Default bad week =/

Ive been having a bad week last week my amd 64 3000 pins were bent but manage to fix it so thats fine.
Then today i was walking towards my room and dog walked in front of me i triped and i hit the computer the computer basicly flew back hit the wall i looked in the back of my pc and u know were all the stuff goes mouse,keyboard ect.. was inside the case now like it got pushed back ,and bet so i took everything apart bent it back and put everything back in my k8n neo 2 motherboard is now bent but its still works fine,also part of my psu broke the black ring around were the power goes but ive fixed that with super glue ,so what u guys think of my week??
luckly my pc is still alive
even tho if a mobo is bent a little will it still work 100%? its been working fine all day today and i ran prime 95 all day too no problems at all

as long as none of the circuits on the PCB are damaged and the board hasn't actually cracked or anything it will be fine

PCB=Printed Circuit Board. a motherboard is a type of PCB. i'm pretty sure he is joking about bolting down your pc, he just means to keep it out of danger.

he doesn't mean bolt down the motherboard he means bolt down the computer case. i would say that you are fortunate enough to have not damaged the circuitry seeing as it is still operating.

I'm sorry about joking. I assume you would know I was kidding but you don't know me so i guess I shouldn't. Anyway all i was getting at was it seems like your computer was getting hammered.
but i think you should be alright if its still running games and such it must be good.
