    Have you checked your PSU? Can you get into your BIOS and check the voltages?
    Seems like you have an awful lot of hardware connected to it.

    Swap PSUs with your other computer to check if it works (try just 1 HD and graphics to see if it boots at all)

    PSU is good its an enermax whisper 480 I think,I took the MOBO out of case and tried a few differant things and still wont post.
    I even tried differant HD's
    Im thinking that MOBO died and now I cant find A replacement locally.Either I will have to order one or sell components and build another one :mad:

    If you can get into the BIOS, try and take the overclocking out.

    Borrow another CPU, to see if yours was "cooked" or try your CPU in another PC.

    Aa an afterthought, are there any fuses in the PSU?

    I agree with Realblackstuff, definatley check the CPU before replacing the entire Mobo...thats sounds like its probably the problem anyway.
