My computer died so I tested my PSU and it's still working.

I put a paper clip and one of the pins deformed a little bit, check the image:



Is it risky to use it like this on another mobo, or should I buy a new one?

I wont advise using defective parts in your PC.

However, if you can bend it back so that it makes a decent contact with the PIN when it slides in then it should work fine. (If you want to risk it, its a small risk but a risk none the less).

If it doesnt make full contact, power will jump to the PIN.
