TODAY I BOUGHT A THERMALRIGHT ULTRA 120 1366 FOR MY I7920 WELL IT TOOK ME FOREVER TO INSTALL. IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT BUT FINALLY GOT THE SREWS INTO THE BACKPLATE AND LOCKED INTO PLACE, I APPLIED THERMAL PASTE AND EVERYTHING. NOW WHEN I TURN ON THE COMPUTER IT TURNS ON BUT DOESNT POST THE POST CODE LED SHOWS NOTHING, LIKE ITS JUST DEAD, I EVEN PUT THE OLD INTEL FAN BACK ON REPLLIED THERMAL PASTE AND STILL NOTHING. ALL THE POWER CORDS R PLUGED IN AS FAR AS I KNOW, SO WATS THE PROBLEM HERE, IT WAS WORKING FINE UNTILL THIS

To start with, all caps mean that you're yelling.

Did you remove the back plate? Was it contacting something when installed? I presume that you installed it outside of the case, and if so, why was it so difficult?

+1 for shorting back plate ( wrongly installed ... )
