Should the Big Typhoon be rigid?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
If I push a little bit on the BT it can easily move (as in bend). I'm wondering if this is normal or should it be very rigid? Maybe I didn't tighten enough? I've posted this in both Intel and AMD cooling cus its not processor dependent. Thanks!

There should be much flexing in the BT, but it may wiggle due to the mounting. But only a little, if it seems like its moving too much then tighten the nuts down on the bracket.
