Re: Stalling...boot loop?
Cool and quiet or auto CPU fan control would cause it to twitch. They only come on when the CPU gets warm (30c ect) unless forced to 100% or plugged in via a molex direct to power.
The only thing I can recommend is reseating the heatsink and try taking the motherboard out of the case while placing it on a piece of cardboard on a steady surface. Leave everything unplugged except for the essentials to boot.
As to thermal paste, it's real easy. Use a coffee filter, napkin, or some good TP to wipe off the paste from the CPU and heatsink. Then with some Q-tips and 91% rubbing alcohol clean the surface of the heatsink and the CPU. This is important: Put a grain of rice sized amount of TIM in the center of the CPU IHS then install your heatsink. Make sure it is making solid contact. Now try to see if the PC posts or boots.
