I think I've read your earlier posts about issues happening only when you overclock, but I wasn't sure if it was you or another guy. It didn't seem like my information would have been helpful to you, but I figure I would mention it for what it's worth.
Adding to that...when I had memory problems related to socket pressure, loosening the cooler alone wouldn't fix anything. I had to physically remove the CPU from the socket and reinstall everything before things when to normal. And I eventually got rid of the center pressure screw. I've tried everything from fully tight, to fairly tight, to just barely putting pressure on the cooler. All the above ended up putting too much pressure on the socket causing memory issues.
Again, I know this info doesn't quite pertain to you, but I think it's something other Ven-X users in here need to at least be aware of. Good luck with your issue, keep us posted and hopefully someone here knows how to help you!
