Default P5k Deluxe Problem

Alright I noticed that my top heatsink wobbles a bit to the touch. It does stay put though. I'm pretty sure that everything should be tight. Looks like I might have to return it which is gonna be pretty annoying. Does anyone else have this board that can tell me if that's normal. It does have those spring style screw ins.

Shouldn't really matter if, you don't touch it.

I hope so. It does stay put and isn't so loose as to be moving by itself

ye but they look very similar. I dont know why Asus made that extreme mobo look like that, now people who buys it wont have the option to put a huge heatsink in there. I guess its meant for h20.

P5K Deluxe


Striker Extreme


The rise from the Tuniq Tower 120 should clear those heat sinks.
