4) When you try to power it up, do the fans do anything?
You can try the paper clip test to make sure your PSU is working, but it doesn't sound like that's the problem to me. I would check the above first.
Just my 2c worth...hope it helps,
Rich

1) my case comes with "prebuilt" stand offs: Corsair 300R
2) Nothing that I can see
3) no bent pins on the mobo, I did everything gently as I know it is a no force socket
4) nothing happens, when I press the power button from either the case or on the mobo. Simply nothing at all happens. As if the computer was off.

I will try the paper clip test.

Oh and the easiest to forget, did you plug in the 8 pin power?
yes the 8 pin is in.

I will let you know which lights are on when I get to the office tomorrow.

Nothing happens when I try to power on. To elaborate, when I flip the switch for the PSU, lights on the mobo come on as in it is receiving power. When I press the power button on either the mobo or on the case, it remains in the same state. No fans twitch, nothing even begins to happen.

You said lights are coming on on the mobo, you should elaborate on this for us.

If you are getting the mobo to boot up but nothing happening and if you have a debug LED, look up what it says if its giving you a number.
Also, a member did mention you ordered a brand new Ivy bridge processor on an older motherboard. I don't know a way of flashing the BIOS without a confirmable post.

I will be going to the office tomorrow to try and further troubleshoot.

What I meant to say is that when I flip the switch on the PSU the lights on the mobo come on as in it is receiving power. When I press the power button on the mobo it remains in the same "down" state.

There is nothing coming on the screen but I will let you guys know what lights on the mobo do turn on.

I flip the switch on the PSU and the lights on the mobo come on. I am not 100% which lights but I will be at the office early tomorrow to let you guys know. Then when I try to hit the power button it stays in the same state. Nothing changes.

i would push down on the ram cause i had the same problem when i install 8 more gigs of ram i was mad as hell then i push down on the ram and everything worked again just try it you never no and recheck everything make sure all cable are fully seated with power completely off then turn it back on and see what's good, cause it don't have to be a serious problem always check the simple stuff first:thumb:

that mobo you have has diagnostics led across the board the manual on page 36 show you where they are at. when you turn on the board, they should cycle on and off. If one stays on, then that tells you what the problem is.

Let us know if they turn on at all

EDIT: page number on manual

I have done this :/ and I even took out all the ram and only put one in. I pressed it down to make sure it was in all the way.

I will look. Like I said, it is only when I flip the PSU switch that LED lights turn on. When I press the power button there is no cycle. It stays in the same state.

Also,

Among all the other things people have said:

1) Make sure you have the CPU fan plugged in to the CPU fan header. (I have seen motherboards NOT post without voltage draw on this header). It is a safe guard so you don't start your mobo up with the CPU in it without a fan heatsink installed/plugged in.
2) Make sure your PSU is functioning correctly like stated earlier. (Paperclip trick works great. Just need to see if your fan turns)
3) Also make sure your PSU is switched to the correct voltage setting (If this applies to you)
3) Make sure your 24 pin and 8 pin connectors are firmly seated in their respected acceptors on the mobo
4) Like others have said, make sure you have the RAM correctly seated
5) If the mobo is lighting up, that is good news. It is probably just something little you are missing.

Let us know how it goes.
