OP needs to fix this so he can match my temps
Yeah gonna buy tomorrow some washers or use the ones that came for be used in the radiator mount at the top of the case

Loose mount is not good. Shim that baby as said with some washers and get it good and tight. The H100i really is a nice cooler for an AIO.
When I mounted mine, I went in a pattern with all the screws, tightening them in steps. I tried to hold the screwdriver the same way every time, and get a feel for the force it took to tighten each screw. I just kept moving back and forth until I felt like all screws were of same and sufficient tightness.
I'm gonna reseat it tomorrow and plus I also have placed the backplate in the wrong position, the little spaces for screws behind the mobo doesn't match with them here, I'm sure tomorrow (with the day light is better to work) I will fix that, thanks guys for the help´
