I managed to damage socket pins by just mounting Scythe Choten cooler too tightly. I never had any problems with AMDs before. You could probably smack them with hammer and they will be fine (as long as they are in socket). Intel just had inferior mounting system with LGA1200. Also if CPU pins were bent then fixing that is easy, but Intel's motherboard pins just straight up fell out. I don't wan to see any other LGA socket in my life.If you are somehow unable to not damage pins on CPU/MOBO leave it to a shop or someone qualified to do it for you then (that goes for untalented people as well).
I really don't get all the moaning about bent pads/pins on LGA or PGA...I've removed/installed CPUs countless times without damaging any of it.
