Ok so I am a first time builder and I did my research before I bought parts and assembled my PC. But when everything is plugged in and the power switch is flipped on nothing happens at all. I tried the paper clip test on my power supply and the fan runs but when I plug it into the motherboard, alas, no power to anything.

Here are the parts I used for my build:

CPU: AMD A10 6800k
Motherboard: asrock fm2a88x extreme6+
RAM: crucial ballistix sport 8gb (2x4gb) 1600
Memory: western digital green 2TB
Disk Drive: LG OEM DVDRW 24x Int
Case: thermaltake commander snow edition

Please help me!!!
