Thermalright Silver Arrow pressure question?

I ordered a Silver Arrow and have read it comes with a pressure knob.

I've been trying to find info online on how much to turn it but have heard not to turn all the way and to turn all the way so I don't know exactly.

I want to be sure beforehand before I install it, so if anyone has a silver arrow or has experience with one, do I need to turn it all the way for 70lbs or not turn it all the way?

I'm using this on socket LGA 1155.


Thanks!

When it's turned all the way you've reached 70 lbs.

Intel's Loading Limits for the LGA1155 Socket

Heatsink static compressive load: Min.: 0 lbf, Max: 50 lbf

This is the minimum and maximum static force that can be applied by the heatsink and its retention solution to maintain the heatsink to IHS interface.

The pressure screw should be turned no more than one third of maximum.
