I was working in my main computer today, and noticed quite a lot of dust buildup, so I started blowing out dust and cleaning a bit. I was about to clean off the top of my cpu heatsink, when I noticed it was sitting at a little bit of an angle. Two of the pushpins had come loose.
If you’re messing around in the case often, I can see jostling the pins, but I haven’t been in this case in many weeks. The dang things just came loose on their own.
I’ve got it back together now, and checking temps, there is nothing out of the ordinary. 36-38 C at idle using the stock heatsink.
Anyone else have this happen? For some reason I have the strong urge to hot-melt glue them in place. :a
