    Thanks for that link, quite interesting stuff in there. and was a lot to read. (I only git in to a few pages) but luckily for me I still have my Tips.

    Originally my system was working with my H70, had odd issues noted above, then I took it off and tried a CoolerMaster 212 Evo and then this is when everything blew up. early this morning on my test table I put my H70 back on and she came back to life with all stock settings which was more than I had the day I created this thread. From then and now I have not at all touched any of the pins (too scared to really). tonight I'll try re-installing the Evo and see if I have the same result, then I'll try my Noctra NH-D14. if I have no issues, I'll re-install my system and pray it hold out until I can plan for and afford an update to IB.

    All I wanted to do was free up my H70 for other testing/benching that I was doing with AMD HW. If I can get my 920 back to a functioning (Stock) system which is all it was for the last year I will be a happy camper.

    I do know though there is something wrong with this MB and/or CPU and that's because when I bought my RAM 1.5years ago my 2000Mhz XMP profile had no issues what so ever, and after the forumwars in 2011 I had reverted the memory to 1600Mhz, and never had a reason to keep it that high (other than benching I'm a practical person when it comes to HW).. once I had my system running this morning I couldn't set XMP to profile 1 (2000Mhz) or 2 (1866Mhz) without a boot failure. I can only go as high as 1600Mhz and for that all I did is set my timings and mem ratio's.

    I'll do this testing later and let you guys know how I made out.

    It sounds like you're getting different results due to how much or how little clamping pressure each cpu cooler is applying to the cpu.
    Wazza's suggestion might help, but you run the risk of possibly breaking or damaging one of the cpu socket pins.

    Yep, but I don't understand how one cooler's clamping pressure changes to another. I thought once the CPU was in the socket, the pressure between the CPU and the pins was constant. so that to be true the plastic "Holster" that the CPU sits in would have to flex slightly to have one cooler behave differently than another.

    That part I don't understand

    Intel has design specifications for everything.
    The cpu socket's dimensions are standardized.
    There is probably a spec for cpu clamping pressure for cpu coolers that covers a narrow pressure range.
    I'm ignoring the possibility that there is something wrong with the clamping pressure exerted by the cpu socket's metal clamp.

    It's up to the after-market cpu cooler manufacturer to design and manufacture their products to meet specifications.
    Some older cpu coolers could be twisted or rotated slightly when they were "properly" installed.

    In theory, modern cpu coolers with very stiff back plates mounted to the bottom of the motherboard should provide the proper clamping pressure on the top of the cpu's surface.

    It's possible that one or more cpu socket pins are not making adequate contact with the contact pad(s) of your cpu.
    I suspect that it might be with one of your "burnt" pins, but it might also include other normal looking socket pins.

    It's also possible that your motherboard has a problem with one or more of the very thin electrical wire traces that only happens when one or more of your cpu coolers is installed.

    This is my best SWAG.

    thanks guys, and my MB is still under warranty until this time 2013. I'm going to try other coolers and go from there.

    Vin

    EDIT: on the warranty page it shows I should register my product, would it make the process of an RMA easier if I did? if so where do I register my MB. I looked on their site and didn't find it under the support section.

    I'm a box keeping *****... otherwise if I didn't have the box I'm not sure I could find it in the bios or somewhere on the board.

    I was able to get everything running with my H70 again, then once I had that I re-installed my CM 212 Evo and everything seemed fine, I ran Prime 95 for a few hours and and loaded temps never passed 70 degrees, so I thought I was out of the woods. Temps in Bios never pass 38 degrees.

    Yesterday morning I started getting random/odd BSOD. so I then tried to re-install windows 7, during the point of the installation right before installation complete where it says installing updates, that hangs for about 10 minutes and then I get an error that the boot information could not be updated. from my reading this is a common issue when updating from Vista to Win7, but in my case this is a fresh install. I've used the windows installer to delete the partition, re-create the partition and format the drives and still the same error...

    Running a 3 disk RAID 0, I took my Intel SSD's out (40GB X25-V) and have updated their FW. tonight I'l try re-installing the OS again. on the RAID, if that's a no-go I'll try setting the disks as IDE and just try 1 disk. if that isn't working I think I have no choice but to RMA the MB.

    Through this process I have run memtest on my ram and that came out OK(Ran over night with no fails) , I have replaced my GTX580 with my 8800GTS-640MB. tonight it's trying different disk configuration.

    if there is anything else to try, let me know.

    System re-installed, Updates doe, currently running prime 95 and temps holding at 63 degrees... So far so good but I don't think I'm out of the woods yet.
