Hey guys!

I recently bought a new 10th gen intel CPU and i tried to insert it in a 1152 socket, indeed it bent its 2 corners slightly. (See the pics below ). Got a new motherboard with proper socket now but the build wont boot. Very likely because of the CPU. Is there any way to work around this?

Thanks in advance

UPDATE: Gently straightening the CPU corners worked. Everything seems to be working just fine.
For everyone asking about the new motherboard, its the cheapest 1200 socket board i could fine, the Gigabyte H410M S2H.
