New Build Rig Boot Up Problem

  1. OK, so I finally built my first system (specs posted below) and when I push the Power button the system starts up for a few seconds and then turns off. I've checked all connections, tried different electrical sockets to start up from, etc. It's driving me up a wall as for the life of me I can't figure out where the problem lies.

    The only other tidbits of information that others may find useful is that (1.) after I plug the computer in there is a single blue light on the motherboard, so I dont know if that indicates issues elsewhere as they're are no other lights and (2.) when I hit the power button and the computer comes to life for a few seconds all the fans seem to function fine except for the ones on the CPU cooler. Also, the LED lights on the case light up as well.

    My System:

    Cooler Master HAF 932 Case
    Intel Core i7 920 CPU
    Artic Silver 5 Thermal Compound
    Cooler Master Intel Core i7 Compatible Hyper N CPU Cooler
    EVGA E758 X58 Motherboard
    Sapphire Radeon HD 5770
    OCZ Gold 6BG DDR3 1600 RAM
    Rosewill Xtreme Series 950W PSU

    I greatly appreciate any and all assistance!!!!

    It's been awhile since you posted so maybe you've solved your problem by now but let me see. It's possibly a bad power supply. Did you use standoffs for the motherboard?
