I needed to reapply thermal paste as when I did it a couple of months ago I was a bit overzealous. Turned machine on after and everything was fine, however, I noticed my CPU fans weren't able to be controlled by CUE software, realised I'd forgot to plug back in the micro-usb to the heat sink. When I did that and turned everything back on I now get no output to my screens. I've tried holding the power down for 30 seconds, unplugged everything but display port/HDMI, removed micro-usb, but no avail. Thanks for any advise.

CPU: Intel - Core i7-5820K
CPU Cooler: Corsair - H100i v2
Motherboard: MSI - X99A SLI KRAIT EDITION ATX LGA2011-3
Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (4 x 4 GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
Video Card: Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6 GB
Case: NZXT - H440 (White/Black) ATX Mi
Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G2 850 W
On mobile so not sure how the formatting is going to be

You say you removed it all again, and does that mean you have just 1 ram stick and cpu in and it's still not booting up on screen? HDMI in motherboard slot
I meant all cables, but necessary, my CPU doesn't have in built graphics, just tried the one stick and I've got output, would you know what this means baring in mind all I did was plug a micro USB in the CPU heat sink. Update: 3 of the 4 sticks seems to be working.

Well it could have just hiccupped or something, meaning reset the bios.
The power to the unit may need to swap the power over. I am trying to remember the H100 setup.
I'd try and get an alternative power supply to it from another source.
