A couple of ideas:
Easiest first step, clear your CMOS. Either using the onboard jumper to reset BIOS, or by removing the battery and unplugging for at least 5 minutes.
Are you using ECC memory? If I remember correctly you're building a two CPU system. I think you need to use ECC memory with most dual processor boards. Might want to check your manual and your memory for compatability.
If neither of the above works, the best thing to do at this point is bench test your system. Removing everything from your case, and install just the CPU, memory, and video card. If it still doesn't boot, check your power supply, RAM, and CPU's (in that order). If it boots, continue installing components until it fails, or if everything works on the bench it was likely a case short.
Hope this helps. There's great satisfaction in building your own system, but there's almost always some bumps getting your first system going.

chassis fan speed xxxxRpm [err]
power fan speed xxxxRpm [err]
Vcore voltage 2.0 [err]
I entered the ignore keys for all these errors and it did the trick,but what i was wondering is how to fix this problem?

The voltage issue is a little different. I suspect the default range is just set incorrectly. Again, there should be an adjustment for this in BIOS. Look for a menu title like "power and hardware monitoring".
