yeah i know, i mainly do it on the chipsets sometimes when i put on a new one so it looks nice. some just dont line up quite right with the holes on the mobo so you gotta put a bit a presure on it to get the tabs in

Sorry, that's the first I've heard of that. On my last build, I had so much pressure on my CPU that it bulged through the mobo on the otherside. Odd.

make sure you installed the hs correctly, with the screws in the right place and all, with the washers and stuff. I put a washer before a plastic washer, and it was susposed to be a plastic washer, then the metal one, and my cpu wouldn't start until I changed it.

I've got a similar problem on my chipset, but backwards. If there is not enough pressure on the chip it will not power up. I've choped it up to be a bad connection on the chip and am going to RMA the board. You may have a bad connedtion as well.
