I just removed my stock heatsink from my rig, it has been running fine before removal. After outting in my new enermax heatsink that had a back plate i tried to boot up my computer. I have recieved no signal from my monitor, but all of the compenents in the computer are up and running but the cpu led on the motherboard is red..

Before the change it worked fine so the pins couldt be bent as al i done was wipe the thermal paste off and put new on.. what do i do?

I would start with clearing the cmos. Do you have a jumper or button to do that?
My bd also has the cpu ok led but its green for ok and red for not. Is yours only 1 color or off if its good?

Ive cleared cmos and mem'oked too many times to count. The cpu light only turns red when something is wrong and ive fixed that but now still no signal and memory led is on.
