    Welcome to techspot!

    Are you getting ANYTHING? Fans spinning?

    When you plug the PSU into the wall, do any led lights come on on the motherboard?

    Most motherboards require two connections from the PSU. A 20pin (or 24pin) plus a 4 pin connection.

    And also VERY important, did you put the riser pins under your motherboard (between your motherboard and case).

    Very important tip - I always forget to do that in the excitement of setting up the new mobo.
