AM4 Heatsink install how tight is right?

Hello i just install Corsair Hydro H60 on to the AM4 motherboard for the first time with mounting bracket that have 2 thumb screw. i done it now but i'm not sure if i did it right.

i'm using my finger to tighten the thumb screw and i don't know if it too tight or too loose it seem i can still move on but my feeling tell me to stop it seem tight enough to me. I afraid that i might bend my CPU pin in process if i keep screwing further. btw it seem i still can make the pump move by half milimeter when i try using my finger to push on the side of the pump with little force (i think it similar weight when typing on the keyboard but a bit harder) should it must not moving after all? or is it okay.

is there anyway i can check if i tighten the screws correctly?

can you give me some advise please : (


Thanks in advance - Ju

    Screws have stoppers so you can't over-tighten anything if it's installed right.
