Alright, so here's the issue.


The ONE SCREW does not align correctly. I believe this is because the Ryzen 5 heatsink may be defective. Is it defective like I think, or is there an easier way to fix this? All the other ones went in straight.

loosen all the others, try starting with that one, just a few turns, then the opposite corner, etc., so it does not get canted too far before starting the rest...?
Although it's possible one is out of spec, it's more likely that tight tolerances mean it's difficult to get one even started if the others are tight.

GOod luck
