tighten it so the springs are fully compressed. as long as you tighten them evenly the core wont crack. tigheten one a half turn then the next then the next and next and so on until its fully tightened

from what i hear there is no point in using a shim. it is not as tall eight as the core so it wont really protect from cracking.

for the vid card yea you could use epoxy.

my load temp right now is 41c with room temp of 23c

just do it evenly, some people including me, use harder springs, and get even more pressure than with those and dont have a problem, just do it rite
