Hi guys, got a Sabertooth p67 mobo from B&H. The capacitors around CPU socket are not lining straight (you can see it from pics).

Does it matter or cause problem or indicate those are bad capacitors?

It should not be a problem. I have had a few new board with the same thing and they boot and work just fine..

What more can I say? When the machine popped them in and the board rolled over the soldering they got locked-in crooked. It's very common for the capacitors due to their design not to be 90-degrees up on all axis. Son't 'align' them otherwise I guarantee you'll damage them. --- sound better?
