Try the mechanical pencil trick. VERY GENTLY. I've also used a credit card or something to line the pins up too. I would only do this if EVGA is not going to help. If you don't feel comfortable get somebody at a reputable local shop to give you a hand.

The seller has said i can have a new one i just need to send the old one back first but, im thinking to myself if i slot the cpu in it might straighten them up anyway.

1) Don't start a 2nd thread, its pointless
2) As everyone's said, just send it back and get a new one.
