It may not be certainly determined if the system is usable or not and how much it will be affected by this damage.

Installing a processor into a damaged socket may damage the processor and this would void the warranty or it may shorten its life span.

In the other hand, even if it works, it may be unstable.

We suggest that you check with your motherboard manufacturer directly in order to replace the motherboard.
