Zalman 9500 not centered on CPU/HFS

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Having some problems getting the Zalman 9500 centerer on HFS.
It is off about 3mm to one side. I dont understand what i'm doing wrong here.
is it even possible to install it incorrectly? I mean once you get the clips
in place it should be centered?

First time installed it looked somewhat off center, but didnt think much about it, thought i was looking at it from a funny angle or something. Now I took the fan off since the temps were the same as with the stock cooler.



Took a picture of the base of the cooler and here you can see how the thermal paste is spread out. It comes off from the side and clearly isn't centered. Any suggestion?? I'm running a E6600 on Asus P5W DH Deluxe
