Today i cleaned my cpu,i have QuadCore AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition 955,so, is not my first time cleaning a cpu,but i never seen this kind a heatsink
So,i cleaned everything really good,then it was time to put the parts how they were,here i found something exactly in the middle under the fan witch i dont know how it was,bcs when i took the fan off the heatsink i think it moved from its original location

It looked like that,under the fan on the heatsink,on the retention frame i think u say

I put it back how i could,but i wonder if i put it well bcs i dont want it to cause and vibration or something there
If somebody encountered this, please help and sorry for my english

Are you talking about the AMD sticker? I doubt the sticker will cause any issues, but if you want, just peel it off.
