And now "ta da".....fans spin lights on mother board, but getting no signal from different monitors (tried DVI and my HDMI)...During a repaste of a Coolermaster Hyper 212 evo...which I have done before, and the process went "flawlessly"...I somehow, maybe erroneously, decided to remove the processor chip and wiped it with rubbing alcohol....it dried, I reinserted and clamped it down. The repaste was routine..didn't over-tighten the clamps on the cooler, and applied a very thin layer of arctic silver thermal paste (credit card method) ...reinstalled. Nothing else was done. Turned on computer and fans spin, lights on the MSI motherboard on, and no signal on any monitor I tried whether VGA, DVI, or HDMI...
I reinserted the processor correctly matching the arrow, and then clamped the baby down.
No signal ...removed the CMOS battery for a while, reinserted, still no signal. I'm sure the video card is working...I didn't "jar" any connections on the motherboard. and the new fan connections for the cooler all work perfectly. I'm really at a loss, any advice, gratefully appreciated. with regards,,,,,,MGSPhillly

First thought, something was damaged. One little bit of static electricity and any number of things could be damaged.

I'd treat it as a problem build and follow the sticky here: https://forums.techguy.org/threads/troubleshooting-guide-for-problem-builds.580000/

Also, any particular reason for the repasting? Unless there is some sort of sign of an issue, it's typically not necessary. My "server" PC has been up and running 24/7 for 5+ years now, and aside from routine cleaning to remove dust/dirt, it has never been pulled apart and repasted.
