A few days ago I received my 3700x, purchased at Amazon Warehouse.

I received it with all the accessories, and as expected, used.

But I realized that one of the pins was broken, I read in some forums that the processors can work even without any of the pins, so I tried it and it worked.

Contact amazon to send me another one but they told me they didn't have it in stock, so they offered me a € 50 discount on the price.

Amazon experts told me that this pin was not necessary, really?

I need you to help me, and tell me what can happen if I work with that processor without that pin.
