The retention plate that holds down the heatsink it's not lining up right with the screw holes on the MB... It says there's a certain way to set the retention plate with my LGA 775 which it seems like it's the same as the instructions say.. (which seems these instructions are for ppl that have done this 3-4 or more times cause in my opinion there vague as sh*t)

And I'm confused cause I did a dry run w.o the paste and the whole heatsink moves. Around quite a bit while. I'm trying to line up the screws.. Isn't the paste going to move around n not be sealed properly? But I don't see any other way that this HUGE heatsink can be fastened down w.o it moving alittle in the process... Unless I have to do this last step while the MB is out of the case... Thought of that after I screwed the MB back in -_- was so amped to bang this in quick n see my temps.. Didn't go as planned

Seems like the fan did the trick.. Running around 38-40c max while coding... 28-30 on idle.. Thanks for those who helped =)

excuse me for interupting, but I have not bought a processor for a long time...
did it come with the heatsink or did you have to buy that seperately ?

The heatsink in question was purchased seperately. Most new CPUs today do come with a stock heatsink though depending on what you're buying.
