I'll go check the pin you're talking about right now.

EDIT: Yes, it was bent. I straightened it out, and it didn't change anything

I think you might have done your mobo in before your chip... CPU's are pretty hard to fry unless you do some serious damage to them, and a bent pin and putting it in without the locking bar up won't do hardly anything to it. IMO, you shorted out your mobo somehow.

make sure your putting the processor in all the way because after bending a pin back sometimes they dont sit in the socket the best. just make sure its all the way down and if you can you should remove the processor of the heat sink and put new thermal paste on.

Ok.

Thanks to everybody who tried to help, I guess I'll buy a cheap mobo + CPU combo. At least it will give me a reason to upgrade slightly
