Asus Motherboard wont boot

  1. Ive built a new computer with the following components but the computer wont start. No Beeps, no fans just a twitch from the CPU Fan.
    The Green LED is lit, so some power is coming from the PSU

    ASUS M4A78T-E
    AMD Phenom 955 Black X4
    OCZ 6GB (3 x 2) DDR3 1600
    OCZ 700MXSP 700W

    Even when i unplug all of the hardware and just have power running to the Motherboard, still nothing.

    Anything I should be doing? or do I certainly have a hardware issue?

    Place the mobo on an anti-static surface and only put in one module of RAM along with the processor. Power it up and see how it goes.

    I hope you've got all the connectors plugged in right.

    I ended up testing the PSU from my old computer and it launched all the fans with ease (450W), All the power was setup properly but the PSU must not be compatible or must be faulty.

    is the OCZ ModXstream-pro not compatible for any reason???

    I doubt that. It must be faulty then.
