hey, i decided to build my PC by my own ..so i installed the CPU to the motherboard, then i put it into the case, and tomorrow i'll continue .. but the thing is that i didn't install the CPU in a parallel way down( straight in), it kindda slipped on the right of the socket a little bit and then i moved it to the left until it came down right, I'm sure i put it in the right way, but I'm worry because i didn't put it down in parallel, is there any risk to the pins of the socket or the cpu??

big risk, socket pins get bent so easy. A reason I like AMD, they have CPU pins still, not socket pins.

thanks for responding, i didn't use any force of pushing the CPU into the socket, it's just slipped a little right, till i made it in parallel .. still a big risk? and how much % of chances the cpu can be ruined?
