I just built it recently and was going to debut it at a LAN party today. This morning I even booted it up to download the Razer mouse drivers. Bring it to the LAN party, it won't power on. Not no POST, but won't power on. Motherboard power button LED lights up, but that's it.
Good thing the LAN was just a few miles from home, so I went back to get my old LAN party rig (Xeon E3110, Foxconn G45 chipset board, 8GB RAM, GTS 250, Antec NSK3480, etc.).
try turning on your PSU. put a paperclip inside the 24 pins of: ANY black wire, and the green wire, or plug it in to a nice PSU tester. if it turns on, that eliminates at least one part as to why your compter won't turn on. did you check your spaghetti headers (the power switch, reset switch, pwr led, hdd led, spkr and whatnot on sually the bottom mright corner of the mobo)? if tghe PSU turns on then you eally might wanna look that over, all you need to do is touch something conductive on the pwr switch header like a screwdriver.
if both of those solutions fail then you could have a dead board, or damaged capacitors, many other possible variables to consider.
