My Brand New ROG Strix OC 3090 MLCCs Crooked

Hi everyone, this is my brand new rog strix oc 3090. As you can see, some of the MLCCs are crooked. Is this normal or I actually bought a defect product? Could this cause issues?

Thank you very much!

Wow! That looks pretty bad. Does it work?

Hi, it works so far. But I want to make sure if this is a common case or a defective product since it is really expensive... BTW, I bought it from Micro Center.

It looks normal. If those 4 capacitors are placed on one huge pad there's just no way they will align straight by themselves when solder melts. It's not beautiful but I see nothing to worry about.

Oh, I feel better now. Thanks for your explaination!
I've looked online for a lot of pictures of strix 3080 3090 and they all have aligned capacities, so I'm wondering what's going on with my gpu.
