Bent socket pin: this fix looks ok?

I noticed when installing my new mobo one of the pins was slightly off, I could see it wasn't quite lining up right if I looked from a low angle. It wasn't a huge deviation but I managed to get it back *almost* straight to the point where you can't see it's off just by eyeballing it (In fact, I thought it was perfect until I zoomed the pics). You can see the tip isn't quite in an exact line in the images.

Throw a cpu in. Run some cpu benchmark tests and test all the ram slots.

You should be fine overall.

And yours were all good? Nothing weird popping up at a later time?
Nothing. As long as the height and the overall location is correct, you shouldn't have an issue. I bent one in the right spot once and had issues, until I realised I didn't have the right height on it and it wasn't making contact.
