So I finally got around to installing my new CPU heatsink. This was my first time installing a heatsink with the exception of when I put my system together last May. Everything went smooth however I noticed that when I was tucking in my cables and closing my case, I bumped the heatsink and it shifted a little. I double checked the mounting screws an they were as tight as I could get them. I fired up the system regardless and the results were good. 47c was the highest my temps went running prime95 and mark 11 benchmarks. Should I be concerned that the heatsink had some give when I bumped it? I will continue to monitor my temps either way, I am definitely satisfied with how quiet the thing is! I even put my case fans on low and now the loudest part in my system are my hard drives...time for ssd's I suppose. My system specs are in my sig.
