Is it just me or are literally all the pins on this LGA 2011-3 motherboard bent?

Welcome to the forums!

Pins on motherboards never stand straight up. That's absolutely fine.

I'm not a professional, just an enthusiast. I don't know everything.

you realize that out of the box the pins are not straight, right?

MOTHERBOARD CPU SOCKET WITH BENT PINS. SIMPLE FIX - YouTube

A slight bend can misposition the pins and make them not contact the cpu but for barely even noticable or slight vertical bends then thats just factory tolerances, got my (before i sold it) garbage p5q pro fixed by bending back its bent pins, even when it looked fixed it still didnt post so one day decided to re bend the pins see if that helps and voila it works, didnt even belive my eyes when the pci post/debug card started to show actual post codes indicating that its attempting to post and enter bios, so beware of noticable but slight bends to the pins, if its just barely noticable bends that you can only see when zooming in with a camera then its normal and prob factory tolerances

They are bent like that so they can exact a little 'spring-like' force to the contacts on the CPU you will push onto it.
For better electrical conductivity.

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!
