Asus x79 rampage IV extreme problems

Got it off eBay, few bent pins which I fixed by bending back with a Razer Blade and after some tinkering with the board I got it to post but I installed it with more ram my GPU and network card I keep getting code 34 on the mobo and too boot I can't get my hyper 212x to be held on to to CPU well

i got myself a broken rampage IV formula, its still on the way but if i come up with something i'll report back.

Did you try the normal steps to debugging ?

34 is a pretty early error, sure that its not the RAM ?
Could even be before that, pointing to a bigger problem.

Seems was the order i had the last two sticks of memory on (right side of cpu) now i got to figure out the cpu cooler. seems like theres not enough mounting pressure(hyper 212x)

Fixed turns out the mounting bolts come in two sizes (didn't say in manual) so all fixed now. Was using the lga 1150 length screws
