I just installed my Hyper 212 Plus and I am noticing something odd and wanted to make sure everything is fine before I really start using it. I have followed the installation guide and watched the following video to make sure I did everything correct. Which I think I did
After the install and while I was installing other components I noticed the Hyper 212 Plus heatsink can slightly rotate left and right a bit. I definitely made sure everything is secure and snug. I wanted to know if anyone else noticed this or did I do something wrong with the way the CPU bracket fits over the heatsink? It does not rotate freely it only does it if I bump it or move it myself.
I have heard of this happening to some people. I think over tightening is far worse than being a little loose. What are your temperatures looking like. If you're getting nice temps, you have nothing to worry about.
Thanks for the quick response. This is actually a new build I am working on and cannot power it up yet. I just want to verify if this is normal or not. I definitely didn't over tighten, I just made it snug. Since you heard of this happening to others I will assume everything is fine and will monitor my temps when everything is a go.
Great, thank you everyone for the reply. I will go over my install again and triple check everything. I just found it was really awkward how you have to slide the criss-cross bracket in between the heatsink and the part the sits on the CPU.
