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: it felt as though it was this long dark tunnel, with a very bright light at the end, so brilliant, it was more brilliant than the sun
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.
