Plus i was woundering if useing the artic silver paste was the only silacon based paste to use or can u use the white as well? thx for any help that anyone can share.

I have had problems like this before. When you get the red rings, whats the secondary error code? And if you have tried the x-clamp fix, try loosening the screws.

Lay the mobo on a table outside of the case, upside down on the heatsinks. Take a wooden stick, (chopstick, etc) and start poking gradually from the edges toward the gpu and watch when it red rings. it rrods when you put it in the case and tighten down the screws I bet. Poke around the screw holes first. That way you can figure out where the cold solder is, and what you need to do to keep the board from flexing. If you do not have access to reflow equipment, try the hybrid fix.
