Default Freaking Out Help!

Ok so Ive never built a computer before, but Ive been following step by step intructions. I got to the part where you install the CPU heatsink followed everything perfecty, used the stock one from my AMD athlon 64 3800+ x2. IS IT SUPPOSED TO BE SO SNUG? I dont think I could get it off now if I tried. Its really tight on there is that alright?

Yeah, that's the way it's supposed to be. No worries what so ever. If the heatsink wasn't like that, THEN I'd be worried.
