Build turns on for a few seconds then shuts off.

I recently ordered all the parts to build a new computer: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/mm915/saved/2pKi

It was my first time building one and I didn't think it'd be too hard, but I'm stuck. I had everything connected correctly but every time I would turn on the power supply, it would only turn on for a few seconds and then shut itself off. I thought the problem was the MB so I sent it back and they sent me a new one which came today. I installed the new one but am having the same problems. I keep getting different debug codes so it's hard to say what's what. I get 9a, 69, 72, 67, and sometimes a few others. I started from the beginning with just the power supply, motherboard, and CPU and ram and then slowly added more and more. Even with the barebones it wouldn't get any further. I really don't know what the problem could be. I don't think both RAMs are bad and I'm not sure if it's the CPU or not. Meanwhile I've had $600+ worth of parts sitting here for the past month and haven't been able to do anything. If anyone could please help me I would really appreciate it.

    alright i found one thing i had wrong right off the bat i wasn't using all the standoffs. now when i plug in my power supply however it won't even power on.
  4. Is it on a bench/table? power plugged in and on - power button plugged into mobo - 24 pin from PSU to mobo snug - same with the 4/8 pin connector?
  5. ok it just kicked on now and it working with the power button. i think we are good! it's stopping at d7! i believe that means something with connecting the monitor and stuff. thank you so much!!!
  6. No worries, glad to help, go have some fun now ! ;)
