[SOLVED] Weird question, but do these pins show any damage?

Hello,

So I purchased a 2nd hand motherboard, when I got it in first thing I did was inspect the pins of the 1151 socket.

I noticed a group of 5 pins were slightly bent to the left, since I got the motherboard price cheaper than average I didn't really complain and tried bending them back.
Atm I'm waiting on a cpu to arrive, until then I can't test so I figured maybe I can ask here if the pins look damaged, or look like they won't make proper contact?

Also I'm assuming no-one can guarantee a correct answer, just here for thoughts so I can cope a little haha. B.t.w. the pins don't look perfectly aligned like the rest, there is a small offset but I'd assume that wouldn't cause a guaranteed issue.

I added small red dots to the affected pins, also when trying to look at the pins horizontally they look on the correct height.

The second picture looks worse. Is it a problem? I can't say. The gouge above the circle would be where I would concentrate my investigation.
The problem with tape is that it will change the height of the cooler in one corner. Maybe that is OK. I might use nail polish rather than tape.
