Looking at replacing a H61 board with a Z68 board for my friend's Ivy Bridge rig. Stumbled upon this EVGA Z68 FTW board that's missing a pin in its LGA 1155 socket. I found a pin-out graphic, but without knowing the orientation of the diagram, it's difficult to tell.

Here's the board's LGA 1155 socket with the missing pin in the upper right corner:

And here's a pin-out diagram I found on the interwebs:

I'm hoping this is a VSS pin (35,AV) in the chart above? If so, then it's one of many many ground pins and the board should be fine? Most likely going in a different direction anyway, but want to keep this option on the table if it's indeed minor damage.

Thanks!
