One crevice has the Thermal Paste going all the way along it, the other one has it going a fourth of the way. Should I just leave it and never clean it up, or will it greatly affect my temps?

I would just clean it up if i were you. It shouldn't really take that long to clean it up. Better do it good the first time.

Rubbing alcohol will clean it off. You can either take it off and clean it quick (does not take long at all) or do what the other user said and get a Q-tip. If you just applied it then it won't take long to clean it either way.

When you stick the heatsink on and tighten the screws try screwing one corner and then move to the opposite corner on the other side (like a tire) and that should give you a balanced and tight hold.

As said go get some rest to start with. Before you really mess something up. Then when you wake up and have a fresh start. Remove the cpu and get some 91% or higher isopropyl alcohol. And use some q-tips and clean around the edges real good.

As all that thermal paste on the side tells you, that you have used too much in the past or now. The megahalem's bracket will not be tight as it needs some space to keep from bowing and putting too much pressure on your board and knocking out the first stick of ram.

And all 1156 brackets work on socket 1155. He just has to use the correct setup on the back plate and the middle holes for the black brace bars on each side. And he can check all this before putting on the heat sink. As that will make sure everything is set correctly before trying to juggle a large heat sink and put the screws in to lock it down.

Since this is LGA 1155, I do not need the Custom LGA775 backplate spacer. That is the only backplate spacer that came with the heatsink. So I have rivet nuts touching the motherboard, I put the o-rings in to keep the rivet nuts from falling out. When I screw in the shorter threaded end of the double-end stud, 2 of them are tight, then the other 2 are a little wobbly. So that part is normal?

Wait you are not using any backplate?? If i understand that correct you need a LGA 1156/1155 backplate.

You honestly need to go to bed as you can't even read post right now. I know i sure wouldn't want to be working on a pc and not be able to know what i was doing.

He means the black plastic spacer. And he doesn't need it for his 1155 mount.
