Case was rattling when CPU was going hot

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have one of those popular CM Evo heatsinks on my CPU. I guess it wasn't tightened down enough on one of the screws because when I took the fan off and tried tightening down the screws, one of the screws wasn't tight. I put the fan back on and it seemed fine but I was wondering if anyone else had a similar problem and if I can be 100% sure that it was fixed. Does the Evo have a reputation of having the screws come loose? I know I do with my personality (screws coming loose... it's a joke... sigh)

What else do you think it could have been?

also, off topic, I have Battlefield 3 for Xbox, should I get it for the PC? Is it that much better on PC? And if I get it, should I get the premium for it or just wait on that?

The screws really won't come loose, make sure they're tight (not too tight). As for BF3, it only exists on PC. Whatever they labeled with BF3 for Xbox and PS3 is terribad. The game truly comes alive on PC and is def worth it. Premium come with premium servers, quicker server queue and all the xpacks. Bf4 is coming out semi-soon though.
