I recently attempted to build my 3rd custom PC as the last two went very well. However this time when I put the PC together absolutely nothing happened except the mobo turned on. So I attempted to return the mobo thinking it could be just faulty but the new one came in and still no life whatsoever. I also plugged in a crappy old PSU to see if maybe that was the issue and still nothing, no fans at all just the mobo's green light. Not sure where to go at this point and if anyone knows or has any advice for me I would greatly appreciate it. :D 

Also the build is as follows.

Intel Core i3-3220 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155

ASUS P8B75-V LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866

Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

EVGA SSC 02G-P4-3653-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16

Rosewill CAPSTONE Series CAPSTONE-450 450W

LG Black 12X Blu-ray Combo Drive

Does it need to be the mini speaker that came it? Its been a couple weeks since I opened all the boxes and I have no clue where the thing went unfortunately.
