Not having the cooler evenly and firmly mounted can drastically worsen performance.

If the cooler is moving without thermal paste, it'll move with thermal paste.

To tag, you use the '@' symbol in front of the username.

As a person guilty of breaking the push pins on an Intel CPU cooler, agreed.

You should go the Linus route, and zip tie the cooler into the motherboard.

Nope. Without any tying (zipties etc.), you could leave mobo horizontally and hope for best.
