Pressure to the Motherboard CPU Socket Cover, Still OK?

  PunjabiMC 23:51 22 Dec 2013

So I recently received my Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3 Mobo. Opened it up to have a little looksy. While overviewing the board, I touched the metal cap just to see if it was securely on. NOTE: It was still in its anti-static bag yet it was quite a lot of pressure. After doing this, i wriggled it left and right and it seemed to be fixed into position.

THIS IS A 1150 Socket, therefore, by my knowledge, the cover doesn't actually touch the pins but rests on the metal bracket. Are any of the pins bent? Is it still okay?

Here is what the cover looks like ONCE AGAIN, NOTE: It was in it's anti-static bag when touched and wriggled about. click here []

You don't have to look at the picture. I urgently need an answer regarding the socket.

The only way you will find-out if any pins are bent is too look at them. If any are you will have learnt an expensive lesson.
