Pull the heatsink off to see if it is contacting? You mean if the heatsink and CPU is contacting? If so, yes it is. If I pull it off, it won't be.
Standoffs are the item that you use to prevent the motherboard from touching the case right?
Why does it matter about the length?
My CPU temp seems fine though.
If anything, I noticed my GPU has the highest temp of 50C and when I checked in the case, the fans weren't on.
I read that some GPU don't open their fans until a certain temperature, so this is normal.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Also, my heatsink is FULL of dust. But still, it has good temperature, so no problem, right?
You said my CPU may be too tight, but it has always been like that since I made this custom PC.
It was after perhaps 6 months after I made the PC that it started BSOD. And it's actually only been year since I had this..
