Well after a long day of pulling my hair out I discovered the side panel fan on my antec 1200 was ever so slightly nudging the ven-x up...resulting the the voltage issue. Since I sawed the corner of the fan off...issue gone...
NOTHING to do with pressure and everything with pure stupid :*(
I just freaked out since numerous other people are stating that the ven X some how crushed their socket. I highly doubted them so when I turned the pressure up and suddenly saw the voltage irregularities, I assume it was due to the pressure. In reality, i tested with the side panel off and on and eventually realized that it was causing the issue. O well lol this is why I stick to reading posts not making them lol.
According to this http://www.thefullwiki.org/LGA_1366 , the max pressure on the IHS is 60lbs. People used 70 lbs of mounting pressure and complained that it damaged the socket. The people who did that didn't do enough research to see if that would damage the board. It is their negligence that caused the issue. If you use the standard 40 lb mounting pressure, there should be any problems, if this 60 lb number floating around is 100% valid.
Nice job on finding the fix instead of blaming the HSF. I'm going to get a Ven-X in a few weeks and toss out my current HSF.
