I would suggest a chill pill firstly.
Or no matter how hard it is or gets to maintain a clear but focused out look on the current situation at hand.

Last time I had bent pins, I just used a tiny (like 1mm wide) flat head screwdriver gently applying pressure on the target pins spinning the processor 90 degrees. It's pretty easy to see whether or not they all align. If none look out of place from both 90 degree angles, then try inserting it again. Remember, ZIF (zero insertion force). If all of the pins are in the right place, it will just fall in to place. If it doesn't, keep nudging the individual pins until it falls in. Do not apply any force on the processor in relation to the socket, it will only make it worse.

A credit card would work in place of a fine screwdriver. Just make sure to only push on the pins you're intending to move.

Again, changing your perspective on the chip (looking down the rows of pins on an X axis then rotating to see them all on the Y axis) makes it really easy to see what is out of alignment. Be gentle with it and do not rush.

Sometimes you can get away with 1 pin missing
Also that. Just focus on aligning for now. If you get it all back together and it doesn't POST...well...that pin was probably important. If it POSTs without it, it'll probably be okay. Odds are a pin didn't break unless you literally find a detached pin somewhere. Those things play tricks on the eye because there are so many.

3/4 of the way down pin missing.

Take a staple. Cut it at the 90 degree angle.

Then insert that piece into the hole that pin would have used. (It’s mirrored and possibly reversed)

I made a guide on how to do this many many moons ago. If the cpu actually needs that pin this will work.

And next time pull straight up and out instead of at an angle.
Terrible advice.

Always twist the cooler rather than pull on it when removing.

Over time can weaken clamp force on ZIFs
How many times are you going to do this ? 2-3 times max ? No matter how careful you are if you pull straight up there will aways be a chance to bend/brake pins.

I twist the hsf after its nice and hot, or use a taped screw driver to get inbetween hsf and cpu to pop the hsf off (twist screw driver dont pry)

Oh I was agreeing with you, sorry for not giving clarity, i never pull

I agree but have had to just pull it out in the past too due to aukward situations ,pull straight, i still bent a couple though.
Gutted for you Op , missing pin could be a spare ground, it's possible.

I would like to try.
If you were on this side of the country, I'd straighten and resolder the pins for you. It's delicate work, not especially difficult though.

I would recommend finding someone who has the equipment and skill to solder on a new pin in place of the broken one.

I used a credit card to straighten my 939 socket cpu when I did this ages ago, pins are pretty tough as long as you dont bend at extreme angles.
Ever since that incident I do a quick prime run before removing coolers on ZIF and twist the cooler a bit before attempting removal.

The problem is they are gold and it is very difficult.

When i attempted to swap the stock cooler for a Noctua cooler, the stock cooler stuck to my Ryzen 1600 and the CPU got yanked out of the socket, just like yours, but was lucky enough not to damage any pins.

From the replies i got @ the time, it seems this type of issue happens from time to time, but that was the 1st time it had happened to me and it scared the crap out of me, tbh.

Perhaps you're lucky (if you can call it that) and that missing pin is not vital, meaning you can still have the CPU working after straightening out the bent pins. If you're "less lucky", it could be a vital pin meaning the CPU will not work @ all.

I am shocked as shit to see they still use pins. Awesome. I used to try to straighten them out best as I could, and using the socket if I could with some jiggling. I know I busted one pin off and it stayed in the socket. Cpu still ran just fine.. I did it again later and ended up losing like 6 or 9 pins after I dropped it, and the cpu would run single channel only. I think it was an Athlon x2 5000 or 5500? something like that.. Tough as nails. Id try it just out of curiosity.

At last, someone with the skill to change broken pins. It can be tricky on the inner most pins & for that task I recommend a infrared
workstation.

EDIT: I still think PGA is better than LGA. You can always repair PGA, as they are soldered to the CPU. Bend or break a pin on a LGA motherboard, you could be looking at a new socket. (personal point of view).

and there is one pin gon, Once I seen that pin fly off I knew It was over.
I wonder if AMD will replace it?
Sometimes you can get away with 1 pin missing
@trickson what eidairman said. There are diagrams which map every pin function. That missing one may be something minor that you’ll be just fine without.

I have the pinout chart for AM4. Looking it over now.

NOPE- Pin 20 = Data mis counted. Sorry.

Its 20 from the triangle. That pin on the pinout chart from AMD says data.

BUT- It doesn't say what data. It could be temp sensor data to a pin for USB data.. idk. But, its worth a try just shoving it back in the board and seeing if it works still once the other pins are straight.

My AMD source is probably asleep right now so, if he responds with what pin that is on his end, I'll edit this post or something. lol


Edit- Its a data pin. However, it should be for a PCIe lane. He said it should boot up. But, depending on how the board partner allocated lanes, it could not boot or boot with a device or lane missing.

If you’re US based, I don’t mind trying to help you out. Feel free to send your motherboard with it so that I can test the chip at the same time. Mine is under hard line tubing and would be a pain to undo for a test, but my offer is there. :)

For those above saying to pull it out straight... nope. Never do that. You always twist the cooler or block to break tension before lifting. I’ve not had a CPU come out with the cooler in years. You just made a mistake, and honestly, those pins don’t look as if they were bent from pulling out the cooler. They would all be unidirectional bends, and they are not.
