One thing I noticed while installing the CPU: it made gnawing sound when I closed the latch. I want to know if it's normal.
You could clean it with 99% isopropyl alcohol (it's rubbing alcohol but try and get 99%), though I don't think it's going to effect anything.

And the noise when you put the CPU in, should be fine as it is metal on metal touching and it needs to make a tight lock. Not sure if they way you described it is the greatest but it seems okay.
