I am installing a z490 with a 10700k, and when you go to push the locking pin down it just feels like way more resistance than I've felt on other CPU installs. It makes a slight "shhh" sound, not really a grind sound, but it leaves two tiny dents in either side of the CXPU when you raise it and look. Should I be worried? I saved for a long time for this.

Can you just take it off and let the cooler [dark rock slim] hold it in place?

Edit: Yes the CPU is aligned to the notch on the middle left and the arrows are lined up correctly
