Yeah was thinking doing a simple stress test for a few mins would prob work instead of trying from a cold start. Computer sits off sometimes 24-48 hrs before I can make it back to using it I think when the new 420 arctic arrives I'll switch it up put the 8 GT fans infront and the 6 140mm fans uptop.
As you can see it's a lil too tight for my liking plus I can finally get to sleeving the GT fans.
Others have said heat and twist which are also good suggestions however there is one that I have not seen yet. Crappy thermal pastes... there are a bunch of thermal pastes out there which are a glorified glue more than a thermal paste not being careful about how much you apply can also change the risk of this happening.
Edit: if you brought that down one slot there would be a touch more slack int he lines
I had that happen 2 or 3 times, back when I was using P4 on Socket 478, and a few family members were too..... it's definitely disconcerting, but once you realize what's happened, and see that all the pins are still intact, it's not that big a deal.
