    MB - ASUS P5B LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel
    CPU - Intel e4400 Dual Core

    Computer been running rock solid for 2 years. I didn't do any changes. One morning I boot it, front green light flashing together with red. Removed everything and I realized issue is between the MB and CPU. When I remove the CPU cover the PC has no green light, solid red, but when I put the cover on the green light flashes insteed of being solid green. This is very sensitive area it seems. I managed to put some weight on the cpu with a screwdriver tring to get a solid green, but this lasted only for few almost a min, then resets and trys to reboot again.

    What could be causing this flashing green light rather than solid on front case? It's not the PSU since I tested it with another one. Also If I put the GPU I can hear unstable fan noise. Its like its struggling.

    Other things to add. Thermal paste could've damaged the CPU or the pressure from the cpu cooler that I tightened maeby way too strong months ago. I am 100% I can't do anything to fix this. I know Il have ro replace one piece. Problem is Im not certain which one :( and no way I can find out...
