So I've noticed that my stock Intel cooler has been loose and this has caused my CPU to have been at 100 degrees C for a while and I have no idea how long this has been happening! I will atatch a picture of the problem. I don't know if there's anyway of fixing it and if not I need a recommendation of a cooler that's the same size please! Sorry if I sound a bit demanding or rude! Thanks in advance!

Get yourself a budget cooler. Basically anything out there will work and fit that as its been the same mounting solution for Intel since Sandy Bridge back in 2011 when they moved to the 11XX socket size.

Ok cool thanks very much for the advice! Was thinking that too but only problem is that I don't think I can go any bigger than this cooler - I'll attach a pic. Wondering if u could please possibly give a recommendation? :D. As shown very little ram clearance as the board is micro ATX

There are tower coolers that will fit. Like H7, Deepcool Gammaxx 400 etc. Your cases height limits might be issue. Which case and what stores you will be using?

Unless the pin is broken, you can just properly install the cooler by pushing the pin in and turn it clockwise to lock it into place.

If you ever need help with a build, read the following before posting: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/3061-build-plan-thread-recommendations-please-read-before-posting/

Budget case... Do you know how much space it has for a cooler? From experience I think it will be under 155mm. Cryorig H7 and M9i will fit for sure. The rest I don't remember.
