I was building my pc when I noticed that I accidentally bent one of the nodes of my motherboard. I put it back into place a bit but I don't know if it is still functional or not. Will it be okay? Please advise.

Motto: Hey! I think I've seen you before. Maybe we should go out for a drink?
Doesn't look like the end of the world. I'd leave it as is and try to use it. Or option B would be to send it back and get another one.

Personally, I'd just use it unless I noticed something wasn't working correctly.

Caps often come from the factory bent more than this. It's fine, but you did more harm by bending it back.
