So the one you "failed" to fix, did it break off or just stay bent?

I would fix it before I ever put it back in and turned it on, but you did already so...

As to what it "controls", I dont have a cle, but someone might. If they do you would need to tell them, which CPU, which pin and maybe more info.

I would say that eventually something will probably get janky, most pins on there do something.

No...there's no "program" to tell you which pins do what. The best you could hope for is a pin-out diagram. If i were you, i would check clock-speed and vCore in CPU-Z.. just to make sure that it didn't change the voltage. In all likelyhood, you should be fine, as many pins are ground pins, and won't affect anything negatively. The fact that it is running fine is a good sign.. so i wouldn't lose any sleep over it. I have broken pins off accidentally before, with no effect. GL

your best bet is when it starts to act up I would shut down the comp pull it out and get some good needlenose plyers and gently ever so gentrly try to straighten the pin back to where it was before

This will sound like a series of silly questions.

Was the hsf installed properly?
Was a thermal agent used?
Was that used in the specified manner?
and finally, do you currently use any temp. software atm to keep an eye on your system temps?

Qwerty.

Damn man, just damn!

I always load my cpu right before I am going to pull the heatsink, let her get good and warm then shutdown . Warming the TIM will make it come off way easier, also unclip it then use a gentle twisting motion to remove the heatsink from the cpu.

credit cards usually work pretty good for straightening out bent pins
