I recent swapped my motherboard to b550 got a new ryzen cpu, ram and psu. So basically built a new pc. It’s being running great no issues at all. I noticed a sound the other day, so I checked everything while it was runnning with a light to see. Basically under the spring screws of the wraith cooler where the screw is suppose to go in there is another screw or maybe it’s a bearing but it wobbles when the pc is on and makes a sound as it’s moving... everything in my pc works fine but I don’t really want this to cause a issue down the line.

 

I found this a couple days ago so I tightened the cooler screws and made sure no wiring was over the cooler etc, it was actually fine for a bit but now it’s started again and I’m not sure why? Do I just need to really tighten down the screws.

Motherboard is MSI b550m pro vdh and 3600 cpu.

You only have to tighten the screw until it creaks, no need to go all the way.

If you still have wobble, you can use a rubber or steel washers.

thanks for the reply, the cpu itself is fine, it doesn't move at all. It's bascially the below the spring screws the metal moves, is this something that normally happens and you have to buy washers?
