i was replacing my stock heatsink for a coolermaster evo, and i did the measurements and on paper it should have fit fine. but when i bought the cooler master and installed it, i saw it was touching my case door and the door was giving just a tiny bit. what should i do? is it bad? like i think i can but a non conductive heat material such as tinfoil between the case and sink. but idk help?

Best solution

tinfoil is anything but non conductive for either heat or electricity!! Just make sure the heatsink doesn't tilt when you close the door. A piece of paper would do more than tinfoil..

It's fine as long as the door doesn't melt:)
