MB bends with stock Intel HSF... HELP heh

My MB (Gigabyte GA-8IHXP) bends in the area directly bellow the CPU after I fasten the stock Intel HSF. The HSF is on it now so it seems to be fine and its only bent slightly... Is this normal and what could cause this?

Yeah, that's happened with all the P4 boards I've had(3 currently). Alpha does the same thing if you tighten it to the bottom(which is manual tells to do).
Thanks for the reply Exec! I'm glad it's not just my MB... I know the stock Intel HSF exerts around 100 lbs of pressure (from what I remember) so it makes sense I guess.

BTW - Welcome to the forums! :)
