Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 Mobo and AMD FX 4130 chip won't turn on

I recently purchased a Shell Shocker item from Newegg.com that included a Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 Motherboard and an AMD FX 4130 Processor. The first item that I received did not work, so I returned it and got a replacement item. The second item that I have now is giving me the same problem as the first.

I have been unsuccessful in trying to install the motherboard. I have tried two different cases and three different power supplies. The two cases worked with the motherboards that were originally in place. However, there was no action with the new motherboard. Each time, I made sure that all the appropriate components were connected properly.

At this point, I am not sure what to do. What might be the issue here?

Two thoughts: Is the CPU fan spinning when starting the board? And what are the 4 digits after SN in the board's serial - for checking if the BIOS does support the CPU?

Thank you for taking an interest in my situation.
No the fan is not spinning there is no sign of life.
To answer the last question the serial is SN133040042415 and the check number is7100.

The CPU is supported, but the CPU fan not spinning could have as causes:
-the 8-pin power cable not connected
-the case' front panel cables not connected properly
-faulty power supply.
Try testing the board outside the case, only CPU and CPU fan installed, connect both 24 and 8 pin power cables and start the board by shorting with a screwdriver the 2 pins from the motherboard where the case power button wires should be connected (when pressing the power button you actually short the 2 pins). Check the manual for the proper pins.

Thank you for your help. I finally got the motherboard working.
The issue turned out to be something simple. The case's power switch cable was not compatible with the motherboard.
Once I found a case with the compatible cables, I was able to hook it all up and get it to work.
