Would this effect cooling performance?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I applied thermal paste last night to my CPU and I placed my cooler (CM 212 EVO) back and when I was tightening it down it slid side to side quite alot. Would this effect the cooling performance (around 35c idle).

Thanks

No. I have the same cooler and it always slides quite a bit when applying the screws down or trying to get it seated. no temperatures effected.

Besides which, idle temps mean nothing. Your temps under load are what count.
