So how am i going to fix this

So i RMAd my mobo and they say one of the pins is bend and thus voided the warranty. Issue is, it probably bend because i tried to put the cap back on underneath the lock (which seemd stupidly obvious) only to find out its supposed to be over the lock. 

Cutting this story short: how do i fix this myself to prevent myself from buying a new one?

Bent pins are the ones out of line, different reflections and such. the odd ones out.

Ok Got a new mobo as it turns

Ok Got a new mobo as it turns out that the 3 'short' beeps actually means it is a PCIe Error. I had to go to the local pc store to find this out. for some other reason this guy knew but 'every single webpage containing beep codes for POST' did not.... 

 

Eitherway, got a MSI Z97 Gaming 5 now and its so cool!
