If you damaged just the fins, then it's completely fine.

If you damaged the long channels then you'll have a leak.

Without knowing EXACTLY what radiator you have, I have experience with the 9 I have.  If a screw hole that was meant for securing either the rad to the chassis or a fan to the rad was used, these line up with fins.  Bent fins in this area are fine.  As noted above, if you punctured a copper(or aluminum if you bought an alu one or its an AIO which are 99% of the time aluminum) tube, then yes, you would have it leaking right now.
