The PSU starts, then stops immediately. I'm guessing this means that the PSU is faulty?
Possible but not definite. It could be on the CPU side, most often bent pin/s in the MB socket, quite rare for the CPU itself to be faulty.
Borrow a known working PSU and test a bare bones setup again..
Ring a local PC repair shop and ask if they can test your PSU, test must be done with equipment that tests while PSU is under load, or, powering up a known complete working system.
RMA the PSU.
If the system still does not boot with a known working PSU.
Remove the heatsink/fan,
Remove the CPU from the socket and inspect for bent pins or a foreign object in the socket.
If no issues found.
You have reached the stage where I advice to RMA both the CPU and MB, either could be faulty and there is no easy way for you to find out which.

I tested the pc with a spare PSU i had, and it ran perfectly. So I've organised a replacement after I've sent my one back. Thanks to all of you who helped with me with this issue and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
