I've been waiting 2 years to build and this happens literally within the first minute.....so frustrated
I almost don't even want to RMA and just go buy another board, knowing my luck it's going to take a month to get it back...
really frustrated...need some help =/

Murphy's law at its best.
The question is: does the socket lever works without that plastic part? Its job is to secure the CPU in the socket by tightening the pin holes. If you can place the CPU in the socket and secure it by closing the lever, I think you can do without that plastic part that broke off.
On the other hand, you waited two years to get the parts, what is a month more?
UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH yeah you're right
I really really really don't want to wait longer but I know I will have to.
If I bought it from newegg, do I issue the RMA with them or with MSI?
