take the mobo from the case and connect the power supply to test it. This will also make swapping the motherboard easier in case you have killed your mobo in the process.

to try using the old fan again to see if it works. Its possible that the fan on the coole ris dead and so not letting the board boot... but I kinda doubt it.
It could also be a short caused by having the screws for the mobo be just a tad out of alignment, and maybe the hardware for the cpu coller may be off centered enough to ground to the case.stick some duck tape on the case under the mobo where the bottom of the cpu coller whould touch to prevent this... not elegant, but it can work.

Does the cpu cooler fan spin up at all? Or do any fans spin up? Any particular pattern to the beeps?
