The green LED on the motherboard only means +5VDC is present. It says nothing about the required +12V or +3.3V.
The most common problem with new builds, assuming the PSU is good and connected properly, is extra or no standoffs under the motherboard, or a foreign object, like a screw, under the motherboard shorting everything out.

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912
Motherboard: EVGA P55V SLI
Processor: Intel Core i7-870
RAM: OCZ Gold 4 GB DDR3
HDD: Seagate 1 TB LP HDD
DVD Writer: Lite-On 24X
PSU: Ultra LSP 550-Watt
GPU: GeForce GTX 460 1 GB
I took a look around in the case and did not find any lose screws or any other random bit floating around. I checked the stand offs as well and there are no extras installed.
EDIT: For some extra info as well, while I was in the BIOS when it was starting and before the BIOS would freeze up on me, CPU temp was steady at around 100F, all the fans were functioning, and I had 3.3V on the 3.3V monitor. I didn't have much time before it would freeze up so I wasn't able to check much else before it just stopped functioning all together.
