Looks like

Looks like a few bent pins. That can't be good. Maybe try to straighten them with a pair of tweezers?
I could try it, but im not good at it and I dont know how they are supposed to be to get back to the work.. I was watching some videos about it, but still its very hard if i will use too much pressure or something it can get more worse..

Okay I fixed some cpu socket pons back but not all of them and for now I connected all parts back to case and when I turn the PC only the PSU makes short and small sound and nothing happens. Like yesterday it was turning in and all the fans was spinning but for now it seems that it wont turn on anymore. So I dont know whats going on with this PC.. I thought I better will wait for tomorrow and I should get the other same socket motherboard and I will try to turn on with other motherboard. So as I said before I have no clue whats going on with my PC right now. Maybe its already dead and there is no chance to restore it for a second life.

Your EVGA 450BT power supply has built in features like Over Voltage Protection, Over Current Protection, Short Circuit Protection. When you try to start up the motherboard and the PSU only make a short clicking noise, that is likely the power supply immediately shutting itself off to prevent damage to the PC parts it is powering. The power supply is doing what it was designed to do.

Might be that you are saying the truth, but how im supposed to check the computer if it is alive if the psu wont allow me to do it?

I think it's safe to assume your problem is the bent pins in the motherboards CPU socket.
But its possible to fix and to have working motherboard again right? Okay then. I have another question I already have 1 dead 1155 motherboard and this one half dead and what do you guys do with broken PC parts?

It's dead. Fixing bent pins with tweezers and a magnifying glass is a monumental pain, especially when it's more than just one. Even then it still might not work.

Recycle station into the electronics bin, usually.

Okay, thanks for your time guys and a help, we finally came to an agreement that motherboard is dead or half dead. If my PC will not work when I will get another MB I will try to keep you informed, other than that I hope other parts are safe such cpu,rams,gpu,psu. With that being said, Im so happy that you helped me and we reached decision even though it was hard at first.

Yeah thats what I meant to say, the pins on the motherboard has some broken pins, and thats why it wont turn on? Or it might be the other problems that causes it not to turn on?
Nope, a bent pin is where you call the code. It's dead, and you can't really fight that. Try and fix it though, look up a guide on fixing broken pins. Otherwise, you need a new motherboard
