      Hmm, funny. Still, copper (and many other metals) isn't really brittle or something. After all, there're flexible PCBs around and they're bent during normal course of action. But since it's not that thing, speaking for myself, I would run extensive tests and wouldn't touch it, leaving system in working state. Also, CPUs got plenty of "redundant" pins, e.g. power supply. If few are damaged, cpu could survive that, as long as remaining contacts could deliver enough current. Worst thing whch could happen is probably case where damaged tracks cause short circuit, that's why I wouldn't touch it if it works. Shorting MB step-down delivering like 100 amps isn't greatest idea ever.

        Forever ago, I dropped a CPU. I think it was something like a 486, all ceramic. Chipped the corner and a pin fell off. It never worked after that
