Default p35c ds3r mobo question

just got it today, and the big gold mobo heatsink has some play in it. It moves up and down and feels like its not connected all the way. It is still attached firmly to the mobo, is this normal or something I should worry about?

Thanks!

That might be a problem. That heatsink should be firmly connected to the board. Another guy here bought one which had it totally seperated - he eventually had to RMA it. I would give gigabyte a call if i were you, you might have got a lemon there.

here I did it color coded:





the green area is connected firmly, while the white moves up and down a good bit, maybe 1/2 a cm. Thanks

Mine has a little bit of play in it too. I havent had any issues with it though. I think it actually uses grease instead of a pad.

Thats normal, mine does it as well. Don't worry about it, it's just a different setup.

While we're on the subject of the ds3r, how much do you think i can sell my board for. I'm wondering if its worth bothering to sell it or just keeping it to make my HTPC when i get my crossfire setup.

I bought mine brand new for $109
I wouldn't pay more than $75 for a used P35-DS3R even in mint condition.
