Just bought a Big Typhoon for my rig and I'm a bit concerned about installing it. It's WAY more MASSIVE than I ever imagined! Pics don't do it justice. I'm worried about cracking the core since sckt A's don't have an IHS and if I tighten one side too much and then go for the other, it'll crush the core. Anyone running this setup? How tight should the four nuts be? Should I tightened a bit at a time going around the nuts? Also, I'm a bit worried that because the heatsink is so heavy that it'll put torque on the core once I put the mobo back on the case and the heatsink is sideways.
