I have a broken pin on my athlon 64 cpu. Its f2 on the chart and a VLDT_A pin, which is a HyperTransport™ I/O ring power supply pin. Now What does that mean and is the cpu still functional without that pin? I just ask because other pins got bent when this happened when my cpu stuck to my fan, so I am trying to figure out if its worth the time to straighten them or if that pin killed the cpu.

This is very very hard to figure out according to pin assignments some are negative and hurt nothing but if there are other bent or broken pins who knows.

Its best to very carefully straighten the pins using a ball point pen with the cartridge removed then install the processor and see what happens, the problem with this is if a pin gets broke off in the socket bye bye board

Well, I decided to straighten them using a credit card and mechanical pencil and the cpu seems to be working fine thankfully. Didn't feel like replacing my cpu since they aren't cheap.
