What a disaster for you
Have you tried removing the add on video card from the MB and connecting your screen to one of the graphics ports on the MB, if not try it and post back with an update.
When you post back, can you also let us know if your MB has an onboard speaker.

The jfp2 slot is the correct one for your speaker.
So my computer, ever since I opened it wasn't working.
Can you explain what you mean by this as in is it a new computer or upgrade etc.
I can't even try anything with the computer since it doesn't even turn on
Sorry but slightly confused as you post the following in your OP;
Everything would turn on except for the video cards fans. The video cards lights would turn on but not its fans.
Are you now saying that pressing the power on button does absolutely nothing, no signs of life from any hardware.

just to clarify something.
1:- you had problems and replaced the motherboard.
2:- you had problems again and noticed bent pins in new motherboard socket and a cracked cpu so bought a new cpu.
are you still trying to get the new motherboard with bent pins and the new cpu working together?

The barebones set up will not do any good if a damaged CPU has not been replaced, the clicking that you said you heard could have been the CPU shorting out or arcing across the crack in the processor.
Thanks for dropping in terry, I misinterpreted it as the CPU also being replaced.

Do the barebones set up then and yes the CPU needs to be in place and the CPU cooling fan connected to the 4 pin CPU fan 1 header on the MB , can you also make sure that the single stick of RAM that you insert is in DIMM slot 2, this is the second slot away from the CPU.

to be totally and brutally honest with you, and probably not what you want to hear,
Also am I supposed to add the CPU?
When you say the two power pins, do you mean the green and black wire on the PSU?
if you have to ask such questions then i don't think you've read or if you have, not understood the motherboard manually so after buying 3 motherboards and 2 cpu's and still not getting a working pc, i really think that yes.
We are thinking about bringing it to a technician
that is exactly what you should do and will probably work out the cheapest option for you the way things are going too.
for your info.
FIRST READ THE MOTHERBOARD MANUAL, and keep it close by so you can refer to it if needed during the build.
these are the minimum steps that MUST be taken before you can even think about testing anything when building a pc.
1:- install cpu into motherboard socket, instructions on how to do this are in the motherboard manual.
2:- add a small amount of thermal paste to top of cpu (always clean off both cpu and heatsink of old thermal paste from previous fittings before apply new paste) and then connect the cpu heatsink and fan to the motherboard on top of the cpu.
3:- connect the cpu heatsinks fan wire to the correct motherboard fan header, instructions on location are in your motherboard manual.
4:- install 1 stick of ram into the correct ram slot, instructions on location are in your motherboard manual.
5:- connect 4 pin power lead from psu to motherboard which powers the cpu, instructions on location are in your motherboard manual.
6:- connect 24 pin lead from psu to motherboard, instructions are in your motherboard manual.
7:- connect monitor to motherboard, instructions are in your motherboard manual.
8:- connect keyboard
9:- now place motherboard on top of something non conductive, like the motherboard box.
now you can add power and test things.
1:- plug in psu power lead and turn it on.
2:- locate the 2 pins on your motherboard that the power button lead from the case will connect to when you install it into the case, instructions on location are in your motherboard manual.
use a flat screw driver and GENTLY touch those 2 pins to short them together with the flat end and then remove screwdriver, this should cause pc to power on if everything works.
now for this.
I didn't test the MB yet, but I plugged everything into the mb and turned the power supply on, and now it's make a straight buzz noise.
personally i don't like the sound of that and would instantly turn the power off.
is the sound a buzz like an electrical short would make and where is it coming from the psu or the motherboard? or is the sound more like a beep? if a beep again read your motherboard manual, it will tell you exactly what error the beeps are for.
honestly though, i suggest you take ALL the parts you've bought so far (2x psu, 2x cpu, 3x motherboards, etc) and the old parts and case to a pc repair place and let them build it for you and fix any problems they may find, because at the rate your going it wouldn't surprise me if you needed to buy yet another motherboard or/and cpu.
