take it off and re-seat it.

check for damage.

Whats it stuck on with? Has the bump it took cracked the thermal interface material causing reduced thermal conductivity is it?

I edit.

No, that push pin isn't part of that H/S and it is straight. Just looks weird from that angle. I actually just bent it back to almost normal :) I'm retro fitting my 120 extreme and the heat pipes are hitting the MB H/S's !! That wasn't supposed to happen WTF!

I am going to a removal of all of the heat sinks as there aluminum and not copper. When I do I will post a crap load of pics and what fits.

So the Maximus Formula also has aluminum ?? The P5E is basically the same minus a few things.... right
