Good old Arctic MX-4 (brand new tube). I hand-tightened the 4 standoffs the first time around. 2nd time around I did that and gave it a little extra very gentle squeeze with some pliers. I also fiddled around with the mounting pressure on the thumbscrews up top, first just the hands, then a little extra with a screwdriver.

I have mounted the cooler 4 times now (different paste amounts and shapes too) because I wanted to make sure it wasn't a contact issue. I'm still not entirely convinced, though.. I'll redo the whole thing at least once more.. still got half a tube of MX4 left to play with.

To be 100% accurate here.. I'm using the H115i ( CW-9060027-WW ) with the AM4 Bracket ( CW-8960046 ).
