Sabertooth p67 capacitors

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?

    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?
  7. Thx Jaquith. will take your advice
