Well, it looks like I finally secured it in. Now I did not wipe the already-smeared paste on the CPU--I figure I will just see how it goes. If something's wrong with the temps, I could always wipe both the pump & CPU and re-apply with my own.

Now, how hard should I screw in the screws that hold the bracket/plate to the back of the motherboard? I was wondering if they have to be real tight to make sure the pump is in contact with the CPU? Since I did not use the adhesive pads, I did not want my bracket (on the other side of the mobo) to be pushing full force onto the motherboard as well.

As tight as you can get them without going nuts. Basically till your hand is slipping trying to turn.
