Hi, I'm building my first computer and I'm currently putting the cpu in and when I was lowering the retainer I noticed when pressing down on the lever it seems to be pressing WAY too hard and seems like something might possibly break/crack. Any reason to this or solution or is this normal?

Make sure the cpu is aligned inside the socket. It should be sitting flat. It does require a little force to latch on the retainer. Check out some YouTube videos.
