    If you push on those types of heatsinks on a non-supported corner it is going to wobble... after you break the thermal paste bond.
    Wobbling is bad.... if it overheats change the thermal paste out and reattach the heatsink. The springs should be hefty enough to not allow much wobble without considerable pressure.
