I replaced my cooler and my computer would not turn on absolutely no response after pressing power button I connected everything right (even the tech guy from computer fixing department couldnt power it on) my doubt is did i fry my motherboard connecting this cooler? (same guy told me it was a possibility) I made sure i had alll the preventive methods.

I had the front pannel conectors wrong on my first try but i fixed it and it should turn on after that

system specs cpu: i5 4570 cooler: stock cooler (wont turn on after placing Cryorig C7) gpu: gtx 760 SC 4gb ram: ballistix sport 8gb (single) psu: 500 watts evga motherboard: msi h97i AC
