    Lightbulb [SOLVED] ruined pins on motherboard?

    PLEASE HELP!!!

    Hi.I think I`m in some trouble...
    I built a pc for the first time 2 months ago and last week I decided to install a AIO liquid cooler.
    And after removing the stock cooler took out the cpu to make sure it was clean.(terrible idea!!!)
    After putting it all together and plugging in all cables I flipped the on/off switch on the psu and the whole thing turned itself on!(I dont think its supposed to do that without pushing the switch in the front?)
    Also,the display said "no input" and my k-board didnt get any power and the mouse didnt seem to have any connection,either!
    After taking it aprt again,I found that a couple of pins were bent.(yes,I feel like an IDIOT) I tried to fix it and it seems (visually) to be ok but the problem persists.

    Is there any way to check if the pins is the issue!Or do I have to buy a new mobo to see?

    Please advice,I`m pretty desperate.
    Last time I posted a question here I got very good help and I expect the same thing now as well!
    Thanks in advance.

    If you can take a high resolution picture of the CPU socket and post here we can help see if any pins are out of place
    Some people have taken the boards to a Jeweler to straighten the pins on their boards with success, otherwise it is a lengthy and expensive RMA proposition

    They would RMA a board for damage caused by the user?

    I believe they will repair for you at a cost, which may or may not be worthwhile, you will have to contact ASUS support for your region

    Hi.
    I never thought my phone had high enough resolution to take that detailed photos but because of the urgency I checked the meny,just in case...
    And what do u know,I had an option for 20,7 mp and that was enough to get a good picture so I could se it clearly.And I was able to fix the problem!!!
    I`m actually using that pc to write this message.-problem fixed!
    THANK U SOO MUCH FOR UR SUGGESTION!!!

    Have a beautiful day,sir!
