Well, my computer came in. I ripped open the boxes and started putting it together.

I got everything together, and turned it on. Boom, it would turn off after 1 second. I figured it was either an issue with the Heatsink not being on the PSU propperly, so I adjusted it. No go. Then I saw that the case didnt come with anything to raise the motherboard, so i got some of those and fixed the grounding problem (almost, didnt fit right). So I started it up and it was running smoothly for about 30 seconds , then boom turned off again. I decided to completely dissassemble and add more risers to make sure i had no grounding problems.

So I hook it all back up, push the power button, and I hear this loud single beep then it shuts down. I push power again, no go AT ALL. Not even a little bit like before. The motherboard light is green , though. So I look to see if i forgot to plug something in , and see I didnt put my power back on my graphics card. Plug that in, and try to turn it on. Nothing.

So now, it will not start AT ALL when I push power. I checked and double checked, and nothing.

Does anyone have any advice...im going through [bleep] right now. I think I've got a faulty MB or PSU =/

edit: Here's the parts...

Something is wrong with the mother board so it may be fault, look at the connections, and make sure there connected properly.

See if this helps new build poblems but if you install the motherboard in the case without standoffs and powerd on the board may be toast. Check the bottom of the board for scortch or burn marks if they exists it may be gone

Well, new update.

When I take out my CPU and leave the heatsink fan connected, and power on, everything starts fine. Fans run, HD spins, etc.
When I put IN my CPU and hit power, absolutely nothing. Won't power on -at all-.

Is this a CPU or MB problem?

I don't know the answer to that, its almost imposible to tell.

With the cpu out ( because thats the only way to power the board) remove the ram, make sure you have a case speaker connected, do you get any beeps? Listen close in a quiet room they could be weak.

To be honest I would try and RMA the motherboard and the cpu, from what you have explained I am about 99% sure the motherboard is bad
