i screwed the bolts hard, i didnt apply new thermal compound as i thought it wouldnt need it as i already put arctic silver 5 a couple months ago, im not sure about the pointy things ill have to get back to you on that on, and every time i checked to see if the console works it was always open, i never close it while testing

the secondary error code only had two numbers the first one was all four quadrants, and the second was 3 quadrants (quadrants 1,2 and 4)
so the error code is 03 is this the same as 0003?

Get those bottom pennies off the RAM and insulate them if you plan on using them first, the top ones are close to shorting on some SMT caps also, ditch them as well. It's hard to tell what may have been shorted out, and really the only thing you can do now is ohm out the 5v and 12v lines to see if the problem is there.
ok i did everything except the ohm thing but that is irrelevant now because now i get a different secondary error code which is 0021 and i dont have the dvd drive connected.
is there any possible solution to this?

That error could be from the DVD drive not being connected or the GPU is causing it. Put it back together now with the X-clamp mod alone and see how it acts, don't over tighten the bolts so much this time.
well i put everything back together as normal and i still get the 3ROD and i still get the same error code
