well ok installed a thermalrite 120 on a 9550 right. so then like i screw it on and everything. I test to see if it moves and it does. its hard to move it around but it will move and the screws are as tight as possible. what should i DO! is it supposed to be liek this or is it ruined? like the thermalright moves left it right when I push it hard do i need to reapply thermal paste or what or is this ok?

Thermal paste has nothing to do with it. I'm not familiar with the mounting system. Are you sure you did it right?

you should be fine. its probably just a little old gigabyte cooler moved to but it was a clip on. and temps were great on that thing.

All of the thermalright coolers of this design swivel like that. It feels wrong, but you should be fine.
