You didn't remove that little sticker that says
"unauthorized tampering may lead to serious death or injury'
did you? I vote that the power supply can't handle the new
equipment. Uninstall and test...
I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

1. Are you getting any beeps from the BIOS?
2. Have you tried a different video cable?
The logo is not that unusual. Most screens will produce some sort of display if they are not getting a signal.
That is a very heavy cooling combination. It is quite easy to damage the motherboard when installing them. Particularly after the MoBo has been used for a while............they get brittle.
I don't think that it is a power supply issue. Compatible CPU fans don't use that much different in my experience.

Bad memory won't throw beep codes all the time, unfortunately.
Bad memory will cause some of the most voodoo symptoms you'll ever deal with in comp repair. I'm not talking about dead memory, I'm talking about failing memory...
Troubleshoot by sticking the monitor on another system, and keep swapping parts around between boxes until you find the culprit.
Hope you have extra stuff!

The interesting bit would be if there are any beeps at all or just one.
One would suggest that it has booted properly whilst none would suggest that it has not.

Check that the voltage on the back of the PC hasn't been switched... I was in a competition in high school, and the only symptom was that the monitor wouldn't come on... I checked everything, video card, ram, monitor cable, you name it... time ran out... the guy overseeing that station flipped that switch, and presto... it started working again... not sure if this is your problem, but double check... I think it should be set to 115 in the US...

The voltage selection switch is (by design) not something you can change by accident.
This is the cooler:
It weighs 755gr which is around 27 ounces!
Intel socket 478 and AMD 754, 939 and 940 have a recommended maximum of 450gr. For other sockets it is 300gr.
Even carelessly moving a machine with a cooling unit like that in it can screw it.

Thank you Slot you are correct. Opus learn some manners. I do know what I am talking about.
