UPDATE ON IT

so when i removed the CPU cooler the CPU is not getting the right pressure apliaded to it to keep it going
so when i put a little pressure on the CPU with my hands the computer stayed going what could this mean or dose it mean my CPU pins are broken or the CPU is damaged
i lined it up and put it all in perfectly the way it was meant to be placed in with no touching of pins when i placed it
in the motherboard

Either - you really messed up everything or the cpu cooler just wasn't installed properly. Give me an update in the future.
