Alright, 3 hours of bullshit later and I have a working computer again. The 5600X I bought from BestBuy had a bent pin but I managed to bend it back and wipe off whoever's fingerprints were on it and now it's installed and working. So much for "new stock" though.
Not to mention when I removed the heatsink from my 3600 the CPU came with it out of the socket. Thankfully it wasn't damaged, although I did give myself two cuts trying to remove it from the heatsink so I could reinstall it to update the BIOS after the 5600X failed to boot.
I ordered pizza. =3=
