Damaged to cpu?

I managed to pull a AMD64 s939 cpu out of its socket without releasing the
lever on the side of the socket! After a thorough examination it seems to
be ok (no missing/bent pins) but, apart from actually plugging it in to
another mobo, is it possible that it will still work?

(i should add that the power was off - of course! :D )

Probably - check the case for cracks as well.

I did the same thing a long time ago with a Pentium when the heatsink
was stuck on using that double-sided crap. One pin at the edge was bent,
but I gently straightened it and it worked fine for another year before
selling the whole computer. Last I heard it was still ok.

I did that with a 3400+ clawhammer about 3 years ago, it's still running
today just fine.
