I just put together my new build for 2020 using a Ryzen 7 2700X CPU on an ASUS TUF X570 Plus Gaming motherboard.
When I was installing the cooler I had to push the black lever quite firmly to rotate it to the correct position to tighten the heat sink to the CPU.
Is that normal?
I don't remember what it was like for the heatsink/cooler 5 years ago for my FX-8350.
It's running nice and cool (idles at around 30-35° C)
Thanks

PS. I haven't changed my CPUID signature yet.
