Issues with A240g and Ryzen

So I bought the A240g kit 5 months ago to get me into water cooling for my AMD Ryzen setup and had no issues till about a month ago. I am now having an issue with what I will describe as CPU pressure. Upon shutdown the computer will NOT power off completely (fans and lights stay on) and once this happens I can not power ON the computer without messing with the CPU block. I will either have to loosen and re-tighten the nuts or take the block off. I have taken the block off and making sure the Paste isn't too much or too little and it will literally do the same thing no matter what I do. I am not using any tools to tighten the nuts down just hand tight and even just slightly under hand tight with the same results within 2-3 days. I can take the block off and put the stock fan on and have no issues so I know its not the CPU. I am out of Ideas on how to fix this issue without removing the CPU block which is part of the reason why I bought this kit.

Exactly which kit and motherboard? Sounds like maybe uneven pressure?

My set-up is

Asus Prime b350-plus
ekwb A240g kit

I have made sure that I have tightened all the nuts equally as possible, Also I made sure that the rubber gasket is complete with Both inner and outer gasket attached.
