Computer won't turn on after installing a new power supply

From what I can tell everything looks like it is plugged in properly. During the installation I accidentally unplugged the front panel cables but I am confident they are in the right place. I tried the paperclip trick to see if the power supply is faulty or not. Nothing happened to the power supply, but the lights in my house flickered (maybe just a coincidence). Also, when everything is plugged in and the power switch is on "I", there are no lights on. Normally there is a blue light on the motherboard.

The power supply is a Corsair HIVE-750

Here is a link to my motherboard: http://us.msi.com/product/mb/P67A-G45--B3-.html

Processor: i7-2600k
Graphics card: GTX 580 Twin Frozr II

Any help is appreciated

Perhaps plugging it into the wall socket might help.

Yes, I am kidding.

But you would be surprised what people miss sometimes.

Was the fan spinning on PSU when you did the paperclip test ?
