Hi all

Strange problem here

Brand new msi 270z with a i5 6600k.
Pc works fine if the cooler is off. If the cooler is on will only boot with 1 stick of ram or sometimes not at all. When its off pc runs fine with all 4 sticks in.
if you try install it well pc is running the pc blue screens

What I find strange is I pushed all over the cpu well the pc was running without the cooler and no amount of pressure or tapping would get the same result as just poking it with my cooler. It is a aio. Tried with it unplugged. With no thermal paste incase that caused the short and with it plugged in. I'm extremely confused. The cooler never did this on my b150m pro. Any ideas what I can do
I'm dumbfounded
 
Solution
Problem resolved. One mounting point for cooler was missing the rubber ring to ground it and was shorting whole pc. Dumb<Mod Edit> move on my end
