there might be a setting in your bios to detect your cpu fan...

and the new hsf combo prolly uses standard 4 pin molex (connector for power)
just turn off the fan detect setting and try again
the setting should be under PC health settings or something like that

hit DEL to get into your bios after you restart

if there is no setting then tr hooking up a fan to the cpu fan header and see if this works...

Lemme know if this works

Did you make sure it was seated correctly? Making good contact with the cpu, using a TIM? Thermal Interface Material, such as Arctic Silver 5?

Is it just a windows booting problem or it doesn't even make POST? If it doesn't make POST, then it may be that the heatsink is touching the mobo and it is protecting itself against short-circuit. If it doesn't boot, then maybe the wrong drive is selected (?)...
good luck..

So your system is getting power, but no screen? If so, then try re-seating your video card? Maybe the ATX 12v connector was pulled off by mistake?

You turned the comp on without a heatsink???? That is the number one no-no when it comes to computers. The cpu can die within a matter of seconds.

So you did turn it on without a heatsink??? If that's the case, your cpu has gone to heaven(most likely). Can you still get it to boot up with the stock heatsink?

If your screen doesn't work, then I bet your HT-101 is touching the mobo somehow. I know that cause I did it accidentally with an "improvised" southbridge heatsink and the mobo just shut itself off for short circuit protection. You should check that it's not touching the mobo.

That could very well be the problem, something might be getting grounded, or not grounded. Hmm, this is weird. I guess just try to reinstall the whole thing again. I wish you luck

Yeah, give that a shot. You could also put some small washers between the bracket and the mobo, if the mounting screws are long enough.
