Computer refuses to boot. Help!

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?

CPU amd fx-4100
CPU cooling Xigmatek
GAIA SD1283 Universal CPU Cooler
GPU amd radeon 6970
mobo gigabyte ga l8a7 s2p
case thermaltake VL800P1W2N V3 AMD

Thanks in advance,
