Question: I was installing the stock heatsink and had to lift it up after I already placed it down to adjust it properly (because I am a noob and put it on slightly wrong). Does the thermal pad still work it I lifted it up and placed it down again? I am new to this so I'm not sure how that works. If I need to do something, please let me know.
-Also, I'm thinking of just getting a new cooler for this cpu anyway, so any recommendations for the 1055t to fit in an antec 300?
I booted up and everything works fine.
-Also, the bios idle temp is 43 C , is that normal or did I really mess this up?
-Another thing- this is my first build and I noticed the fan noise from the cpu and video card is more noticeable than other computers I've had. Will the fans quiet down once I install windows?
