So as I was installing my new motherboard...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I accidentally touched the Turbo3D heatsink and it became slightly loose. It's still connected but I can wobble it now alot. Will this become a huge issue???

Feel like an idiot lol

What motherboard is this? And what do you mean by "touched"? Mobo heatsinks shouldn't come off that easy so you must have hit it hard...

Id say just take it off completely, clean the thermal material off it with rubbing alcohol and q-tips, and put on some new Arctic Silver 5 or whatever thermal material you like, and reseat the cooler. If its come off enough to let air bubbles under, it'll hurt your chip's temperatures. If you arent worried about that, Id just make sure everything is tight where it needs to be. It shouldnt be loose, but if it wiggles a LITTLE, its not bad.

Err sorry, I think I might be confused. Not the actual heatsink of the CPU, but the "turbo3d" feature of my motherboard? 880GMA-UD2h.

If you see: http://techwiki.hardwarecanucks.com/...abyte_785G.jpg

Its the actual "turbo3d" piece

that sir would be your northbridge... and chances are, the heatsink is just spring loaded down lightly with a type of thermal tape.... i wouldnt bother doing anything... It should be just as loose as most VRM heatsinks...

If your crazy... take it off clean the stuff off with alcohol and apply a small amount of ur favorite TIM.
