There is a ton of pressure being applied to the outside lip of the cpu. Its perfectly normal to see some minor damage to that outer edge that makes contact....

Better that than having a loose cpu

Trust me on this:
It's normal.

I was undertaking my own first build earlier today, and the same thing was happening to me. The noise is a metal bar trying to twist, which it eventually will. I just used a good amount of pressure (I thought I was breaking it), and a few hours later, when everything was installed, it's working fine

I won't lie, I was scared when I installed the CPU.

BTW it was an i5-2500k in an MSI P67A-GD55.

So many people viewing my thread... it's okay guys.. I made it.

Except now on to thermal paste, which may prove to be even more of a headache.

It will only get much worse . I had so many problems installing my Hyper 212+ on my AM3 board... Why do they make it so easy to install on LGA 1366 and 768 but so hard on AM2/AM2+/AM3??? If you install it the wrong way, it will fall off and ruin your GPU!!

First time I installed it I got 80-90 degree C temps... and it was on perfectly! Then I reinstalled it the SAME exact way and dropped to 30-40... Don't get me wrong, I love my Hyper 212+, but installing Heatsinks is tough

applying thermal paste is easy, refer to the picture. Just a small line across and your good
