Me and my friends opened up the case of my computer to take a peak and my friend noticed that the heatsink isn't sitting on the processor straight. It is weird. It is still secured. Do you think that I should try to move it?

turn the pc off, and turn it around 180 degrees. then see if it sits on the cpu correctly.

i didnt think you could put a skt A heatsink on the wrong way without it damaging the processor or even being able to clip it down

if you havent fixed this yet, look at the bottom of the heatsink, there is a little ledge on one side, you have to rest this edge on the processor socket where the plastic is
