Two red lights is overheating. Make sure the fan is connected and working. Maybe you forgot to reconnect it?

I am 100% positive you have an tiny air gap there...
(lobing on extra thermal paste doesn't help either... it should be a very thin coat.
I would play with tightening and losening the screws.. if that doesn;t work you may need to put washers in.
Without giving the exact details of the mod you need I cant really help further.

two red lights does give a secondary error code. i dont mean onscreen, but by using the sync and eject button
Not if it's overheating what is the most likely situation here. At least zephyr and falcon do not I'm not sure about xenon...

if you need proof that a 2 red light board does give a secondary error code (no matter what revision motherboard it is), im always happy to provide it

Anyway, it's overheating so time to check the contact between heatsink and C/GPU
I don't need proof You seem pretty confident. Maybe my board was just really dead Couldn't revive it

As the box heats up you get thermal expansion and you break the contacts again causing the box to lock up.
Some boxes can not be fixed with an xclamp replacement.
Did you use a heatgun?? You really need to reflow the solder under the chips.
