Corsair H55 water cooler one screw does get tight

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So guys i have an i7-3770(NON-K), and a asrock b75m Mobo which has the intel turbo boost technology, recently i learned that i can go to my mobo bios and change the cpu ratio of all cores from 34=3400mhz=3.4Ghz To 39=3900mhz=3.9Ghz , so everything is fine by now but cutting the long story short the water block which is attached to the processor via screws on the mobo , all three screws are tight , but one screws is simply kind of just keeps on rotating freely , this happened when i changed my motherboard, the guy who setup my rig he said it wouldn't cause much issue, although i have never had heating up problems , but should i get this fixed ? i mean i know because this happens when the mounting bracket of the cpu cooler under the motherboard is a bit loose which has nuts on which the screw tightens,that bracket is loose , i just have to have all system opened up and have that bracket properly sticked through a table tape on the mobo,,,, what my question is should i have my system all opened up to get that screw properly tightened

Can you get a temperatures reading of the cpu when the system is doing something intensive like gaming?

If it's not getting hot or crashing then you are probably ok.

Were it my own pc I would open it up and fix it myself, but if you don't have the confidence and it's working ok then don't feel bad about leaving it. You will need some more thermal paste for the cooler if you remove it.

Thank you This is the screenshot as far re-applying the thermal paste is concerned the guy barely took the water block off the CPU, he somehow managed to remove the motherboard without having to remove the block over the cpu, and then he screwed tight the water block from below the mobo, i dont think the thermal paste is somehow an issue because i just bought it the corsair h55 watercooler new 7 or 8 months ago .

I took this screenshot after playing AC unity, witcher 3 for half an hour and then ran 3Dmark benchmark thingy

as you would be able to see in the HW monitor software screenshot the maximum temperature of my cores combined are 62 C.

much appreciated thanks a bunch.

Sounds like that one mounting screw either came stripped or was stripped by whoever set it up for you.
Your temps look about right with that cooler (used to have a H60 on my 3770K) for stock clocks.

I'd personally would want them all fit though anyway though. You could get a spare set of moutning screws from Corsair or another mount/bracket kit etc from a hardware shop if you want for some spare parts.
