LGA1700 Socket Pins

Hello, I looked at my LGA1700 socket and wondered if these are bent pins. At first, I thought they are, however, they all look uniform. Hopefully, a knowledgeable can confirm that these pins aren’t bent and I won’t need to fix it.

Yeah that's fine. There are two different directions pins will go in, and you will notice if a pin is out of place (it's very noticeable since the way light reflects off the pins). I don't notice anything, so you should be fine.

As @RONOTHAN## said, it's OK. Those aren't pins per se, they're small tabs that touch the surface of the pads on the underside of the CPU. Their bent-over orientation allows them to operate like a spring, creating a broader range of pressure that will allow for reliable contact between the "pin" and the CPU pads. 

Screwdriver specs: Long, pointy. Turns things. Some kind of metal.
