Just a quick CPU/ MOBO Question

  1. I am RMAing the MoBo and when I was pulling the Heatsink/fan off the CPU it pulled the whole thing off of the MoBo. The bar on the socket stayed down. Is this going to damage the CPU?
    I did get the CPU of the heatsink with gental force. The pins are straight and look undamaged.

    You may have gotten away with that. Testing it is the only way to be sure tho.
