if it the cheap plastic leg intel cooler then the legs are not locked in..or you forgot the thermal pastes.

Either your heatsink is not attached correctly or you forgot to take the plastic off the bottom.

The stock heatsink comes with thermal paste pre-applied so that wouldn't be the problem unless he kept taking the heatsink off and on. He probably didn't seat the heatsink right. Make sure the black male pins are all the way through the clear plastic female adapters.

I had a guy that soldered 3 hdd's together. He said they were easier to cool together than separate. Hope he doesn't need warranty, one of the drives was bad and he wanted all 3 sent back for replacement. lol

Also had a machine the whole inside was a bull ant nest, full of wood and straw and mud nest and when we opened it the entire tech room was under siege from about 500 bull ant's scattering everywhere, what a mess that was.
