I have just recently installed a cooler master hyper 212 plus to my computer. After this when I hooked back up to my monitor nothing was displayed and it just went back to sleep. Also when I tried to turn my PC off it just stayed on and I had to turn of my PSU. I think this is a CPU problem because some of the articlean thermal paste remover ran off the side of my I5 3570k. It wasn't much and I promptly wiped it up. Could this have broke my CPU? I also tried on another monitor with the same results. Please Help. Thank You.

My apology. I made a stupid mistake. My ram wasn't plugged in all the way. Haha
