Default cpu pins

Hey all i just had the scariest moment of my life
i took out my heatsink to clean it and my amd athlon 64 3000+ s939,got ripped out of the socket stuck onto the heatsink,then i took the cpu of the heatsink and turned it over and looked at the pins a whole row of pins were bent,so i tried bending them back with my finger and credit card after a hour or so of stress i finally got it to fit back into the zif socket i turned pc on and everything seems to work ok.
my questions are will my cpu cause problems later on in future like
freezes/reboots/ect.. anything at all?
is my cpu still in perfect shape does it still have all its performance ect..

sorry for all the miss typed errors heh english isn't my native language.

it should be fine as long as the pins don't snap in the future because they would have been weakened by being bent or as long as it wasn't static damaged when you bent them back into place

I had that happen to mine. The grease was just GLUE to that processor. I bent about 2 pins, and it works fine. Just as long as you don't break any... Then you're up a creek. My friend broke 3 pins on his P4 3.0ghz and he was going to cry... I talked him into an AMD system..

Broken pins are fixable but just really hard to fix, you need a uber fine soldering iron (that isnt too hot) and uber steady hands. LGA775 makes that even harder.

You can use a mechanical pencil to straighten the pins.

Just take the lead out of the pencil, and use the barrel to fit around the pin and straighten it back up. Slow and steady is what is needed.
