Heatpipes not flush with plate

Recommended Posts

I noticed the heat pipes were not flat with the heat sink prior to install which I thought was weird but kept reading that they changed the design for the 212LED slightly.  So after installing this cooler it ran fine under idle (~15-25C) but when I ran Prime95 to test the cooler I was seeing temps of 78C on my FX8350 (stock cooler maxed at 65C) has anyone else received coolers that are not perfectly flush on the heat sink?  Did I get a faulty unit that sneaked by or is this common?
