So I have just put together my new PC and I saw some of the sprongs on io shield are not bent inward to the case but are resting beside the usb connection ports. So do I have to tear my build down and bend those things in or am I fine to run my pc if the sprongs don't interfere with my peripheral connections?

If not broke (meaning everything is working) then leave the prongs/sprongs alone.

AKA - "if it ain't broke then do not fix it."

That said, if some future problem occurs then consider/research if the prongs/sprongs matter.

Unfortunately, translations and/or technical language can get in the way of things.

Fortunately, those issues can be worked out with some time and patience.

My recommendation: wait and see.

PCs work just fine even without the shield so few clips not connecting is not going to do anything bad.
