The stored CMOS information can get corrupted, or the settings they used to test the board won't boot with your parts, and needs to be cleared.

Power off the PSU, and try the clear CMOS button.

If this doesn't work, disconnect everything except GPU and CPU fan, and try booting with 1 ram stick only. If it still doesn't work, pull the mobo out and boot outside of the case on a cardboard box.

EDIT: you might want to post your location, you can probably find someone local to you to give you a hand.

reset cmos and start form scratch but it would help if you new someone with some experience with these kinda things. good luck and ya i don't see your 12v cpu power maybe make a video of the inside and leave the side panel off when you power it up might help

Flippin' the PSU switch does not allow any fans connected to the PSU molex to start; this is not normal at all.
The GPU fan kickin' in is normal, until the BIOS is done loading.

If I were you:

remove everything from the case. Drop the board on its cardboard box with the following:

CPU and HSF properly installed and connected to the CPU Fan Header.
1 stick of ram in the slot closest to the CPU.
Make sure the 24 pin and the 4 pin board connectors are properly seated. The 24 pin location is quite obvious, the 4 pins (could be 8 also, depending on the board) is located above left of the CPU socket.
GPU and the PSU cables required for the GPU.
Search in the motherboard manual for CMOS Reset and perform as described.

Connect the monitor cable and the keyboard. No need to connect the HDD and DVD yet.
Start the computer using the onboard Start button.

Good eyes Mark, I couldn't see that and I was looking at his pics. That's usually the #1 thing I miss when I'm assembling a machine and it won't POST.

The cable COULD be hidden beside the CPU fan but we can't see it passing from the PSU, I think mark haev put the finger on the trouble. keep us on date;)

The EPS 12 volt to CPU is the 2X4 pin connectors seen here right? They have been connected the whole time:

Ah sorry OP you are right we can see the cable coming from the upper left cable holes. Personally for your problem if resetting bios is not doing the job I would tell a DOA mobo, the power leak before power on are not normal.
