How do I fix the gap between the CPU lid and cooler?

With the CPU cooler in place, screw in (or push in) the connectors using an X pattern. Tighten loosely first, then increase tension with each pass without putting to much muscle into it. Do not go around the CPU in a square, as this can create uneven pressure across the processor and may impact cooling.

How to install a liquid cooler on a PC?

The first step in the case of liquid coolers is similar to what we did for air coolers.
