    I dont see why it shouldnt work, As long as they are still attached and straight down. But there is always a risk that it wouldnt.

    The best way to tell is to boot it asap.

    I've bent a pin on my P3 once (only one), I just unbent it and it worked fine.

    Thats till a couple of months ago, but its been working fine for at least 2 years after the incident. Not sure if its related. Cause of the computer unable to boot is probably motherboard anyway.
