Hello, I just recently bought an fx-4100 processor and noticed that the heatsink is very loose. If I stand it upside up it will actually fall. I want to know how I can tighten it or what heatsinks you would recommend go with my AM3+ Cpu.

My motherboard is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hello CLman;

That's not right. It should be nice and tight.
Can you tell why the lever won't tighten up the cooler on the CPU?

Are you planning on overclocking?
What case are you using?

From looking at the NewEgg customer reviews for the NZXT M59 a 159mm tall cooler like the CM Hyper 212+ Evo will fit in the case. I'll have a look around and see whats a good deal at the moment.

CM Hyper 212+ $30 & free shipping
Looks to be good for OC'ing in the ~4.5Ghz range. A few owners reported 4.8Ghz
