Found a hardware store that was willing to test my CPU. I'll keep you posted.

 

Consider yourself lucky. Do confirm their T&C before letting them testing your CPU.

 

Their what?

All the components are fine 'sep for the motherboard. Since the CPU is ok apparently my best solution is to simply change the socket in the mobo since it most likely didn't burn out and just the pins are bent. Anyone know a place in EU i could order one from?

 

Edit: found one already

Rolf - make sure you get an estimate on what they are going to charge you to replace the socket.  Have the estimate in hand before authorizing them to perform the repair.

Replaced socket and NOPE. Doesn't work. From what I can tell it's probably a fault on their part but it's fine since i have a warranty for the job.
