I believe you lol that's why I made them.

Anyway...I ended up reseating my entire heatsink because the stupid screws on the bracket were the reason it was crooked. I flipped the bracket around and it's on straight now. I also applied the TIM a little differently and my temps aren't as high as they were before. Hopefully it doesn't decide to mess up randomly.

twisting the heatsink is a method used to break thermal paste contact, i really recommend just reseating completely.

ninja made post irrelivant. good thinking!

If I ever build another computer, I'm going with something easier to install than the 212+ lol this thing requires you to line everything up 100% perfectly because of how shakey it is. The spring loaded screws always want to shift around while you're installing it, causing the whole heatsink to twist and stuff.

At least now my fans are on the HS correctly and it's on straight.

When dell repaired my laptop they didnt reapply the thermal paste at all just left the old dry crap on I asked the repair guy if he forgot and he was like " nah you dont need to re-apply it", and the laptops still fine 2 years on.




If ur temps go wild then replace it, I imagine you will be fine.

I just bought the Hyper 212+ to replace my stock cooler for the i5 I got last week, but when I put it on it still has a little play even though I've tightened it down as much as possible. Is that normal? Too much thermal paste?

Now that I re-seated mine, I can still twist it if I put enough force into it. It's just the thermal paste..once you burn it in, it dries and kinda "glues" the heatsink on. It won't fidget much after a week or two. When I was trying to straighten it, it wouldn't budge at all, but after I re-seated it I could twist it easily because the paste was still fresh and liquidy.

Good call, didn't really think of it that way. Well, we'll see how she performs here in a few!

now you need to reseat it again. most pastes need to set in for a little bit with some heat before they are 100% functional.

maybe you should ask or research before you start doing stuff.

if you dont want to you dont have to, but your temps now probably wont be as low as they could have been if you didnt allow the paste to roll, scrape, and become uneven with the IHS.

the tim the 212+ comes with doesnt get much better after curing

if it is easy to twist there is no need to re mount it
if it takes less force to twist it after its lose again you may need to reseat it

reapply your tim, twist your heatsink, let it cure and then remove it again.

then do one properly, and wow at the difference.

in some cases you may have ereas where theres not tim between the heatsink and the IHS anymore.

if OP was worried about it being done properly, which i THOUGHT was the case, you may want to do it again. If not temp probs, you really dont have to.
