Corsair H80i v2: Can I use the 8 metal washers that came with the cpu.

I was wondering if I could use the 8 metal washers that the cooler came with to support the backplate as mine was "loose"

My idle temps (non OC):

Core 1: 30c

Core 2: 32c

Core 3: 27c

Core 4: 29c

I am using the i7 3770k, are these temps normal?

The backplate is typically "loose" until you mount the cooler. Is the cooler loose at all? Does it have any wiggle? If not, then you are good.

And those temps, by themselves, are fine, assuming that your ambient temp is around normal "room temperature". Do you know your ambient temperature? Your coolant temperature? A "good" idle CPU temperature will have more to do with ambient temp and coolant temp ... and the deltas from ambient.
