I bought an athlon 200ge for office reasons. The stock cooler is the clip-on/hinge type without screws. I put everything together but It felt a little tight upon clamping the cooler to the bracket(bracket was preinstalled on the mobo). So the next day i removed the cooler and cpu to see if i applied it wrong but it was in correctly. But also while i was pulling the lever for the cpu up there was a click upon lifting it up fully.
- Is the clip-on/hinge type supposed to feel quite tight? Or should i loosen the screws that hold the brackets into the mobo?
- Should I reapply thermal paste to the cpu?
- Is that click noise normal?
