First check that you have two power cable attached to the Mobo. The 20/4 pin main cable, (powers the Mobo) The ATX 12 volt 4 pin or the EPS 12 volt 8 pin cable, (power for the CPU) usually plugs in above and to the left of the CPU. Check you have the cooler fan cable plugged into the CPU fan header on the Mobo, not a system fan header.
Do you have a video card installed?

According to your Mobo manual, Page #22, you need a 8 pin connector. a 4/4 pin would do. Sometimes a manual will say that it is OK to use a single 4 pin 12 volt cable, But not in this case. I have also been looking for a professionally review for you PSU, non available. It is a extremely poor quality cheap unit with hardly any certificates at all. I have seen that it is no longer for sale at places like Debs, Here is one of many users results, plenty more like it. > http://www.tomshardw...learned-lesson.
I think you will have no end of problems using that PSU and even if you can get it going, once you start gaming, it will be unstable. My advise is to return it, claiming a refund and state that it does not have enough amps to power your system.
Tell us what you think.

What model of PSU have you ordered?
When reading your Mobo manual, did you take note about switching of the power and of taking anti static measures?
Did you make sure that the Motherboard stand offs that are screwed into the motherboard mounting plate, inside the case, matched exactly the pattern and number of screw holes in the Motherboard? no extra ones.
Did you apply Thermal paste?
Please let us know how you get on.

There are heaps of ways to do this, some simple, relocating after install, some very complicated, moving default location of system folders during new installation of the OS.
Before plunging in, research the method you are going to use so you underspend what is happening. I just use the simple, Relocation Tab,
