[SOLVED] How much to worry about these bent mobo pins? (pictures)


Jan 9, 2021
Building a PC with the MSI B550-A PRO motherboard. I noticed some of the pins on the back were bent just recently, perhaps from me pressing down to install RAM or something? I'm wondering how much I should worry about it, and what (if anything) I should do about it.

One image shows what appears to be a bent pin on the underside of the motherboard. I believe the other shows a round object on the other side of the motherboard... which I was thinking might be relevant to this discussion. I think, but am not sure, that the bent pin is on the direct opposite side of the round object... if that matters.
From the picture they look alright, bent is not really important there so much as the integrity of the solder "puddle" at their base.
Just make sure they arent touching anything when the system is ready to be used.
