So fantastic! I had sent a Corsair H115i in for RMA (pump was erratic) and put the stock Wraith (with pre-installed thermal paste) on my 2700x and MSI x570 Gaming Edge WiFi Plus. The Wraith did great for a few weeks. I received my replacement H115i and took down the computer.

I proceeded to release the lever and when I pulled up (in a rocking/twist motion), the CPU came up with it! I was able to pry it off with a very small flathead, no visible damage, and very little force needed.

I inspected the pins, all looked great, removed old pasted and installed back into the Motherboard. It fell right in and felt snug and secure. I applied a pea of AS5 compound, attached the cooler, and now it won't post. See the video for error LEDs. It goes through this cycle and sits idle. USB keyboard does not power on.

I have repeated RAM and GPU (socket, power connectors & riser cable)

Any suggestions? Thanks!
