TBH the quality on this thing is all over the place.. I felt like I was going to break the screws on the X part of the mounting mechanism on my replacement mounting kit. I might have turned them 3 times around with a screw driver before it stopped budging. On my first one... which killed 2 mobos you could tighten it fully and you could turn the hsf about 5-10 degrees compared to the 0 degrees now.

Reset the whole thing, yes it will wiggle a little bit at first.
As for thermal paste, I would wipe the old stuff off and reapply a new layer. Use the pea method in the center and let the cooler do the work on spreading it properly. Only reason I suggest this is with the application that you have on there already being spread it may cause a little bit of air to get in. Would that make a huge difference? Probably not, but I'm just anal about my hardware.

Different methods for different heatsink styles, it's bets to do a lin in the crevices between the heatpipes on a direct touch.

You sure about that? I swear I recall watching a video of a guy using the various methods and showing that the pea size dot in the center will fill the crevices as the pressure is applied...

HDT heatsinks are different. The regular pea method does not spread it well enough.
