Default Is this ok?

I recently put a new heatsink/fan on my CPU and a heatsink on my northbridge: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118214
well the latter isn't super snug. It's not like falling off or anything, it just feels like it could be a little firmer, is this ok? I mean, I have arctic silver compound between them and it is pinned in, should I just not touch it anymore and be all right or should I try to make it more snug? also it gets quite warm, is that normal?

What are the temps on your northbridge? As long as it doesnt fall off and keeps it at a reasonable temp, i dont see anything wrong with it.
