Re: CPU Heatsink Advice?


SUCCESS!

I removed the heatsink, inspected all the parts and test-installed it a few more times to figure out why it was wiggling. As it turned out the metal clips were too wide for the bracket to fit snugly and tightly onto it.

Going all or nothing I used some pliers to make the clip slightly thinner, slipped it onto the bracket and it now fits!

Reapplied the paste, booted up the computer and greeted to this after 15 minutes of testing it on Rocket League:



We're back to regular service, everyone. Cheers for helping.

Doesn't mean I won't keep lookingly longingly at water-cooling though... :P
