Your parts are completable so you need to do a little checking.   Please refer to your MB/PSU manuals.   Make sure the PSU is off when working on the computer and take anti static measures by briefly touching a bare metal part of the case. 


Check you have the two main power cables connected.

24 pin cable @ JPWR1 

12V power, use half of the 4+4  EPS12V @ JPWR2

Check the CPU fan plug is securely inserted @ CPU fan socket, (top of board.

Switch on the PSU and try again.

Been a while since we heard from you.   Did you get the computer to start?   An update would be appreciated.
