I had a antec kuhler installed, it failed, then went out and baught a coolermaster 212x.
The computer was working as normal before i removed the antec cooler, checked the bios to see what temps it got to, and nothing over 70.
while the cooler was off i decided to tidy up all the wiring, clean up all the dust and now it looks much better.
but, today i installed the new cooler, hit the power button, and no post. nothing at all. keyboard and mouse don't even light up, fans spin up, my dominator ram sticks light up, hdds spin up and so does the optical drive.
no beeps or anything,
i have tried clearing the bios with the pin jumper, checked all plugs and connections, tried ram in different slots, removed cpu to check if excess thermal paste got somwhere it souldnt have, (all seems ok)
Thanks in advance
