Is the power connector meant to be angled, or is it broken? 4070 TI TUF Gaming

I've been having power issues with an ASUS TUF 4070TI card I just bought and have been troubleshooting what the issue is. One thing I noticed is that the actual power connector on the PCB is at an angle, and I wanted to know if this is normal, or a defect? It's strange that it is not flush with the PCB, but looking at the soldering, it does seem to be in contact. So for my own sanity can someone confirm if this is what it's meant to look like?

The power issue has been a fairly common one - screen goes to black after Windows loads, so I have been going through the other fixes I've seen on these forums: replacement 12VHPWR adaptor, entirely new PSU, fixing PCI version to 3.0 in bios, changing power management to Maximum in Nvidia Control Panel, all to no avail, but I just wanted to check it wasn't an obvious hardware issue that could be fixed with an RMA.

Thank you!
