Wunschzettel

The cooler base does not cover my entire CPU. Do I need to worry?

No. On most processors, the hotspot is located in the middle of the CPU (on newer AMD processors, it is slightly shifted outwards). In any case, the bottom plate of the cooler sits above the dies and thus covers the hotspots. It does not necessarily cover the whole IHS (integrated heat spreader), but this is not required to achieve extraordinary cooling results.
