I don't want to screw it up any more, i actually tried to bend it back and went to far and had to re-bend it, sadly though it bent back into the same position like how it was when i bought it.

From the looks of it you should be able to straighten that, if you sent that board in to be fixed garranteed the tech pulls out a fine toothed needle nosed plyer and bends it back that way within 2 minutes. That really sucks that he pulled that trick on you though =( Do people have no pride in themselves these days?

man that sucks, I wouldn't be able to do that to someone...

Thats bent ever so slightly, I had a 680i board I bought once had the same prob, and I straightened. Was so scared of breaking it off But you can do it, do small amounts at a time, rather then trying to straighten in one shot.

Actually you could straighten it out by placing something that would fit a little lose on the side of the pins opposite then bed like a knife blade ( so you don't over bend it)and then take a flat bladed screw driver or a blade of a knife bend it back I would post pictures but my Batteries are dead and I have know idea how to use my web camera without a messenger lol

That would be correct, I've not bother to try it out as one i still don't have my chip and 2 i would not take the chance of wrecking my cpu. The d*ck who i bought it from said he achieved 3.8 with minimal voltage increase.

This can totally be fixed...providing the only issue with the board is the pin. As long as you didn't compromise the integrity of the pin by bending it back and forth as you did, should be a simple fix. I've just done this repair on 5 pins on a mobo last night and the board is working perfectly. Be forwarned that it's very fine work and the right equipment will make it easier. I have a pair of magnifying goggles and very fine tools and it took me about 10 mins to do all 5 pins. Plenty of light is good too and look at the board from all angles to make sure the pin is back in perfect alignment.
