I have a Scythe Ninja. While mounted down, it can still wiggle around a bit. My computer's been freezing lately; when it freezes it just stops responding. The sound chirps about 5 times and then nothing else on the screen moves. Could it be that my HSF is too heavy and since it can move it's jolting my CPU and causing freezes?

You certainly have a problem, but it is not your heatsink that is causing it.

<br />
It doesn't move when it's not being moved...so...no, that's not your problem.

You might have knocked a molex going into one of your hard drives..<br />
<br />
or a stick of your ram might have come a little bit loose, check the clip locks.

I've had it OCed like this for a few months and it started crashing like 2 weeks ago. I've run prime and everything's good.

Update your CPU Microcode eventually (included in most BIOS updates)

you could always just take your system apart and then put it back together to eliminate chip creep.
