Perhaps, if you ever messed with Intel stock coolers you know it might be complicated to make it fit. I have broken 4 or 5 legs of 2 coolers already over 9 years. They can be easliy broken.
Are you unlocking them before ripping them out of the board? The only time I ever broke an Intel cooler was when I turned the lock the wrong way...
Yes yes, they use to broke when you put them (sometimes they don't easily want to fit)
Yeah, I've never been a fan of the click and turn type of cooler securing pins...they've just never felt good no matter how much faster and "convenient" they are. I'll gladly spend the extra time setting up the backplate and screwing down each corner of the CPU. I always feel like those little turn clips are going to slide and pop out while in use, gives me goosebumps just thinkin about. (though it kind of looks like that's what's happened, or whether they were never secured in the first place or not, who knows)
I don't think so. If they fit they will be ok jajaja.
Lol, I've eaten cake with less icing than was on that cpu.
Yes it was a mess. I never did it that bad. I tought I put a bit of thermal paste and used a credit card to put a thin layer, seems i failed to do it and it was a mess.
