CPU socket pins - Is this normal?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Just need a quick backup of my assumption.
This is the socket of the Gigabyte X58A-OC

The pin at the bottom and square up top look damaged to me just wanted to know if I am right or if it is normal.

Oh my god, what's that? I've never seen something like that before, but I think it isn't normal at all.
But wait, don't trust me, because I've never had a newer Intel system.
Seems very weird to me..
