Code 55 after changing the CPU Cooler.

Hello.

I just assembled my new rig yesterday. The only problem I had then was my CPU was running unusually hot. I remounted My H100i and the no avail. I then switched to my Noctua nh-u14s. I tryed to boot and Code 55 appeared. I tried using different RAM and nothing changed. The only thing that gets my comp to boot now is moving 1 stick of RAM at either outer dimm slots.

I took a look at the pins in the CPU socket and nothing seemed to be out of place after inspecting it with a Magnifying glass.

Does anyone have any idea what could be the culprit?

RAM is installed correctly. I've tried 3 different sets of RAM. aswell tried memOK

The system ran perfectly before I switched coolers. I've tried to even out the pressure on the cpu as well.

I've remounted cooler 5 times. Tried stock heatsink. None of that worked.
