Bent Motherboard. . . pins?

Go to solution Solved by GuiltySpark_,

Those are just through hole connection point pins for a component on the other side of the board. Its how its attached. Completely normal. 

Recently I built my pc but it had refused to go to post screen. Thinking it was most likely my problem and it being my first build, I decided to take all the parts out. On doing so, I noticed that the back of my motherboard seems to have two of their pin looking things bent. Does the affect my motherboard and does this mean I would need to buy a new one? 

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z689 UD DDR4

Thank goodness. I thought I bent them. Thank you so much!

You mean those two pins in the middle of the picture? (usually when I hear "bent pins" and "motherboard" in the same sentence my mind goes to socket pins)

That is sometimes done to keep the part in place when it's soldered, it doesn't impact the functionality of the board.
