Finally received all my hardware to build my new system and I'm a little confused with installing the Hyper Evo 212. This is on an AsRock Z77 Extreme board.

This is how I installed it. First, I installed the rear bracket with the studs and nuts. Then I cleaned the CPU and base of the Evo and added thermal compound. This is where I'm a little confused and think I might have did something wrong. After putting the Evo on the processor and installing the "X" bracket I noticed it is possible for the cooler to move without much pressure on it. Just wanted to ask and get some advice before I went any farther. I'm thinking I might have did something wrong and the cooler isn't suppose to be moving at all. Thanks.

It shouldn't be able to be moved very easily, no, but it's supposedly ok to have a little play in it. FWIW, my 212 Evo with my Asus board takes a lot of force to move, but I made sure to torque it down just right.
