So yea just to keep this story short.

I broke the some pins at the back of the cpu chip. its a long story so question is,

Is it rma'able or can be replace by warranty?

I have broken pins in past myself, in my particular case, the CPU still worked and performance seemed pretty normal. It was an i7-4790K. Maybe your CPU is not dead?

Youre giving me hope man ILOVEYOU!! the thing is, it is bent so I cant put it in the socket normally. I will try to warranty it first but if they dont cover it I'll try to break the bent pin so I could put it into the socket.

Magnifying glass, pointy tweezers (https://www.amazon.com/TECKMAN-Precision-Stainless-Extension-Laboratory/dp/B07C9WRKMJ), sewing needle maybe. If you can massage it back into place that may work if you're slow, careful and patient.

I mean not like you have anything to lose.

Good thing theres a reliable shop owner who sells pc part around my place. Story is I was about to buy a new cpu (not from where I bought first one). as in I am going to pay for a cpu. then I just throw the question that if I bent a pin is it covered by the warranty. then his face was like bitten by a snake or something hahahaha then he told me that there was a customer who done that and he fixed it. My hope was like jumping out of my body so I told him what happen to mine. then he offer me to fix my cpu and there is a 90% chance that it will still work. so we ditch the cpu that I was about to buy and I bring over the bent cpu so yea hahahaha problem solve. thanks!

AMD isn't going to cover broken pins under warranty.

The retailer might not even take a return on it with it being broken.
