I tried to boot the system and it worked. I removed the processor to install it on my new Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master motherboard. I have to worry that the I9 9900-k CPU could damage the pins from the new motherboard, because of the bent pins of the old motherboard ?

Thank you very much. I thought the same, considering that the pins are on the motherboard, not on the CPU, but I wanted to be very sure, because I don’t want to damage the new motherboard.I worked with maximum care, I removed the CPU just gently pulled it straight up, thats why I'm pretty sure I did not bend the pins, but the builder when he mounted the CPU. Is there any possibility that I myself have bent the pins in such way ? I have such a question because this is my first build, and I think that is impossible for the experienced workers in a branded factory to do it wrong and damage the pins like that. But, it seems to happened. Plus, I observed the pins imediately after I removed the CPU from the socket. My dilema is only for me now, but if I do the things wrong, I don’t want to repeat the mistake. Thank you.

Oh, you have right. Exactly, the location of the bent pins, and very important - the area of those bent pins, plus the degree of bent pins. I thought the same, but considering that I am an unexperienced builder, my first thought was blaming on me. Thank you again.
