The pins are bent? Personally, I'd take the processor back. I've been a WHOLE row of pins on my Opteron, and I spent 30 minutes straightening them back with my fingers and fingernails (luckily they were a bit long ). I got it back, put it in the socket (which I even had to press down a little on because the pins were not quite straight) and it works fine now. Perfectly!
