Hi all,

Installed a new heatsink to the 'puter the other day. Didn't work the first couple of times, fixed something, worked perfectly. Yesterday I added a new cheap 120mm fan I ordered off of Ebay. Booted up the bad boy, did not boot up. all fans worked, LED's, heard the hdd, gfx's fans workings (Continually got louder then quieted down after about a second, this process goes on and on..) I opened up my computer again to check it, and everything looked perfect, I suspected the new heatsink to be the culprit, so I uninstalled that and re installed it again. Still, nothing. I've looked all over the internet for an answer, and I've tried everything I've seen. Sorry about the category, I didn't know what to put.

Can any one give me any suggestions?

Done and done. While I was at it, I also dusted out everything. Still, nada. I'm starting to go a bit :pt1cable:

Cooler Master GX 650w and no, not at all. Except for my R6970's fan speed.
