Im not exactly sure if I installed it right, because you can push it up a little and when you do, the temps go up. I tightened the screws as far as they would go. Right now, on stock and full load the temps are 40 40 36 36. Is that ok? Of course, it would help if I could put my side panel on... but the cooler is too wide for that. On idle my temps are about 26 26 22. Is this about normal??

thats fine.

The reason two cores are at 40C and two are at 36C is because they are two separate dual core cpu's, so the 40C readings more than likely is one die, and the 36C readings belong to another. Those are pretty good temps too.

if you put your hand on the bottom, and push up, it goes up a little, and the temps go up areound 20c real fast
