Thank you Wannabe1
A basic test I should have remembered since this is a new build. Also never a intrusion when someone may have advice to help.

Ok i've taken mobo out of case, and left the RAM and CPU (with fan) connected, and still have the same problem.

I think i'll ask my brother to have a look at it this weekend (just incase I haven't done something completly stupid) then if he can't see anything wrong with it, take the cpu/motherboard back.

Thanks for your time.

As Wannabe1 said, If you have done the above and it still does not start and the led's are still showing cpu error. Then it is a positive reading your cpu is damaged and or mobo has a problem.
Please let us know what you discover and\or if you replace the cpu\mb let us know if everything works fine.

Ok my brother had a look at my computer, and again, narrowed it down to my cpu or motherboard.
Anyway, he took it back to ccl and they said the motherboard was faulty so they replaced it.
Thanks very much for your help
