If you can get into the BIOS then your computer is working. The most likely fault is the HDD settings make sure you try with AHCI selected as well as with any other settings. You don't say if the HDD is showing in the BIOS. Check all of your connections are good and, especially your drive connections. Make sure the Boot priority is Optical drive before HDD.
The proper installation of a CPU fan is often the subject of debate. Though there are conflicting theories as to which direction the CPU fan should face, there are methods to ascertain which CPU fan installation best suits your needs. The determining factors of your CPU fan installation direction include the manufacturer specifications, your case design and the specific design of your heat sink Horizontal Installation
The installation of a CPU fan horizontally to the plane of the motherboard is the most common installation orientation there is. Your options when installing your CPU fan are to blow cool air onto the heat sink or to pull cool air through the heat sink from the motherboard. Horizontal installations show negligible advantages in either installation direction. The differences in temperature usually vary by only 1 or 2 degrees Celsius. The main point to consider when installing a horizontal CPU fan is the location of the rear exhaust fan on the case. If the rear exhaust fan on the case is parallel to the processor, it is advantageous to have the fan pull cool air from the motherboard and push it out above the heat sink. This is because the case fan will quickly draw that hot air away from the CPU and out of the case, allowing for quick cooling.
Vertical, or tower, heat sinks rise high enough off the motherboard to allow for a fan to be installed perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard. This allows for cooling to go from the front to the back of the case, as opposed to going from the bottom to the top. Optimal installations for vertical heat sinks are blowing toward either the back or the top of the case. If there is no exhaust fan in the top face of your computer's case, it is more effective to orient your fan on your vertical heat sink so that it blows toward the rear exhaust fan of the case. If there is an exhaust fan on the top face of your computer case, it is almost always more effective to mount your CPU fan so that it blows air up toward the top of your case. The reasoning behind this is that hot air rises and will more naturally flow off the top of your case. Also, top-mounted fans are usually larger and allow for faster airflow out of the case.
It is often the case with nonstock heat sinks that the manufacturer has designed the heat sink's fan to be mounted in a limited number of orientations. This is usually evidenced by limited mounting notches on the heat sink itself. Most aftermarket heat sinks use technologies such as heat pipes that have specific cooling needs to operate appropriately. Because of this, it is important that in any CPU fan installation you follow the manufacturer's installation instructions.

CPU Installation Procedures for Socket AM2
1. Please turn off the power and unplug the power cord before
installing the CPU.
2. Pull the lever sideways away from the socket. Make sure to raise
the lever up to a 90-degree angle.
3. Look for the gold arrow on the CPU. The CPU can only fit in the
correct orientation. Lower the CPU down onto the socket.
4. If the CPU is correctly installed, the pins should be completely embedded into the socket and
can not be seen. Please note that any violation of the correct installation procedures may
cause permanent damages to your mainboard.
5. Press the CPU down firmly into the socket and close the lever. As the CPU is likely to move
while the lever is being closed, always close the lever with your fingers pressing tightly on top
of the CPU to make sure the CPU is properly and completely embedded into the socket.
Installing the CPU Cooler
1. Position the cooling set onto the retention mechanism.
Hook one end of the clip to hook first.
2. Then press down the other end of the clip to fasten the
cooling set on the top of the retention mechanism.
Locate the Fix Lever and lift up it.
3. Fasten down the lever.
4. Attach the CPU Fan cable to the CPU fan connector on
Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail. A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust. Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.
Hi, well that connector, is the High Current 12 V DC supply for the CPU, Power Distribution.
Now IF the PSU is shutting down when this plug is inserted, then you MUST have a problem with that Circuit, either the CPU, and/or the Power Conditioning circuitry supporting the CPU.
Often is is the actual CPU itself, has failed and/ or the Vregs, Or The Electrolytic Capacitors, right by the CPU socket.
When this happens, IF it is ONLY the CPU, then a repair can be effected.
If it is the Vregs, and/or the Capacitors, then less so. in that case a new MB would most likely be in order.
I have repaired some Gassed Capacitors and Vregs on the MB's itself, but this depends on price of initial price of the MB, the actual faulty components, and the cost and availability of said components. usually a new MB is in order, as we do not want to put a new CPU into the repaired board and have it destroyed, which can easy happen.
