How to fix Bent Motherboard Pins on an Intel Socket (X99 2011-v3)

When I was testing the Asrock Extreme6 I noticed that something wasn’t quite right, when the computer started crashing in the BIOS, so I quickly ran through some of the standard troubleshooing procedures (reconnecting cables, one stick of ram etc.) and that didn’t fix it, I then inspected the pins on the socket and to my surprise 2 of them were broken and one was severely bent. I then proceeded to make sure the two pins were not touching other pins and then fixed the bent pin, and the computer was working perfectly fine again.

If you have any questions then please let me know in the comments.
