1) verify that all required (and only required ) standoffs are in place between mobo and case
2) examine I/O shield and make sure it's fitting correctly (not bent or out of position) and not shorting out the mobo
I need serious help.

I have my motherboard on a box still no hope
Perhaps it could be that i killed the board with static?

Oops - sorry I missed that. Possible, but more likely just a DOA mobo given your other troubleshooting steps.
Did you doublecheck that the CPU is seated correctly and not damaged?

1. Make sure everything is seated correctly
2. Make sure your motherboard BIOS is currently up-to-date
