Thank you for joining the Processors community.
Based on your description, I would consider the increase of the readings an issue with the motherboard. The motherboard was OK before, it did not have bent pins and performed as expected. But now, there is hardware damage that could be affecting the results. The processor does not seem to be fried.
Trying a different power supply won't cause any issue, but you need make sure is compliant to your motherboard voltage.
