New built PC won't start up.

I have a GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P motherboard, AMD FX 6300 CPU and an XFX 550W PSU.

I got it all into the case, and pressed the power button. It came on for half a second and then died. So I took it all out and tried again. Nothing. Took each piece off one by one and got the same result. Split second on then off. I got it down to the CPU and motherboard only with no joy. Does that mean there's a problem with one of those?

    I have stripped down and rebuilt this board so many times. This is what it looks like:
