Sounds like a driver problem
Try a new BIOS or reflashing the version you have, and then of course new Windows drivers.

Unless you somehow damaged some of the traces or chipset controllers I don't see how that could be the problem. Remember, we are talking about Windows here, it does strange things.... I remember sometimes it just wouldn't detect my AGP slot so I lost all accelerated graphics

Could be flexing the board too much. They can only tolerate so much weight and so much flex before ***** starts going haywire. Trying swapping the heatsink out for the original and see if the problem goes away. This would be the quickest and easiest way to determine if a problem that arose at the same time that you made a hardware change to your system might possibly be caused by that hardware change....which was done at the same time the problem arose.
