Cold boot problems + freeze whenever I physically move the computer

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My sig rig apparently has some kind of contact problem between the cpu and motherboard socket because if I physically move the computer, it freezes for 5 seconds and then gets MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION. After that it won't POST at all unless I reseat the CPU and heatsink. I've also had some cold boot problems where only half of the ram is recognized but they got fixed when I turned my tower case sideways. I think the heatsink could be the culprit too. It uses push pins instead of backplate and for some reason is very tight with this motherboard (I had a P55A-UD3R before and then the HSF wasn't so tight). The socket area somewhat bent because of this. Have any of you had these kinds of problems with your rigs? How do you fix something like this?
(oh btw I can't loosen up my heatsink since it doesn't have any screws)

You should turn off the machine before moving it?

It sometimes fails without moving too so I don't quite see the point in your advice...
Also if I move it when it's turned off, it won't POST when I turn it on again and I have to reseat CPU and HSF...
