Last night I swapped out my case and cooler from an NZXT S340 and Cooler Master MA620P (the cooler is too big for the case and scratches the glass) for a Thermaltake View 37 and Thermaltake Floe Riing 360 RGB but after putting everything together it won't POST. Everything comes on and it looks pretty as all get out, but no POST. I had a POSTing problem before but that was due to bent CPU pins on the motherboard. I didn't take the CPU out of the motherboard this time so that couldn't be it. I don't have a system speaker which I know would help but I would love thoughts and opinions. Here are a few of my guesses:
When I took off the thermal paste the Isopropyl alcohol might have gotten somewhere it shouldn't. I don't think this would be a problem but it's a possibility, right? I was pretty cautious with it.
I forgot to install one of the standoffs so there's a possibility that the motherboard is touching the case.
There might be a bent pin somewhere
There might be a broken part. I hope not, but there's always the risk when you move things around.
Everything worked perfectly fine before swapping it all over. I'm sure it's something simple and silly. Tonight I will breadboard the PC and see if I can figure anything out as well as get a system speaker, but in the mean time I would like ideas if at all possible. Here's the build:
