northbridge heatsink attachment Gigabyte 770T-USB3

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I had my Gigabyte 770T-USB3 board out and I noticed the NB heatsink was a little loose. I took it off the board and got all the old tape/paste off of the heatsink and chip. After letting it air dry, I put some paste on the top of the chip and the heatsink back on the board. With the push pins in place, it seems more wobbly than before. What should I do?
  1. Leave it the way it is
  2. Remove the push pins and attach with screws
  3. Re-attach with a thermal pad/tape

If you apply ed the proper amount of thermal stop jiggleing it as you may brake the chipset silicon.
It s the way they make it and as long there is a little pressure and proper non conductive thermal it should be ok.
I did the same on my 770-UD3 and on the 790XT-G45.The stuff from the factory was strange.
If you know you did it well let it be.
A thin layer of thermal will allow better direct heat transfer to that tiny piece of metal.
