I installed the Thermalright HR-22 on my i7 and it seems loose, once all the bolts are tightened down as far as they go, it still turns inside the mount if I press on the sides of the heatsink. Is it ok that it turns like this? I saw in the SPCR review they removed the little washers from the bottom of the motherboard bracket (and top nut washers too maybe?). Is this needed? I like to do it as per the instructions, but I'm wondering if it needs to be tighter mounted than it is.

Edit: The washers on the nuts are glued on, so I don't think those were removed. I guess it's ok, I'm not pulling the motherboard just to try the other way unless I have to.
