I know this thread is pretty old but this issue persists today. Could i use the 8 metal washers that they include with the cooler?

Has Corsair sent out a response?
I bought this for a temp solution for my new build.
My temps were very high and I'm glad I only used the h80i short term while I was waiting for my water cooling parts.
I'd like to use the h80i for a second build for my wife.

Seriously... Corsair... on an Asus Maximus V .. I can completly lift the surface off of my cpu???

Lot's of good people on here with a fix, but why haven't you stepped up? If you have else where I apologize?

Found this old thread again, but I think you need rubber ones since I recall metal ones didn't fit quite snug behind the socket. Give it a try and see if it works, be sure not to over-tighten the screws though.

Surprising that the issue persists after so many years, I presume they've had lots of complaints already.
It's probably down to Asetek since they're the main OEM for Corsair AIOs.

I would check that you are using the correct standoffs. Yes, it's a little loose on the board but once you tighten the screws, it's snug. My son's system is an AsRock Z77 and it's running this exact cooler with absolutely no washers and no issues; snug as a bug in a rug.

I remember it depends on the motherboard since the PCB thickness can vary between them? Mine wasn't exactly snug after the install so that was the issue back then for me. Ymmv temp wise.
