Seeing as you didn't list it, any chance your trying to reuse an old PSU? Maybe one that doesn't have the correct plugs to power your new motherboard?

Everything is brand new. However, it does seem that there are too many plugs for the motherboard. Like, I have 2 PCI1 plugs and no where to put them on the motherboard. Do I need to put power to the auxiliary PCI Express graphics power connectors? There is one SATA type and one 1x4 pin type. Which should I use? Do I need any? Both?

If we're dealing with a standard x58 mobo, you should need a 24pin main ATX plug, and an 8pin Aux plug. Mobo I know of won't boot if they don't have the correct power being supplied.

Link to the ram kit you have please, if its one of the higher voltage ones you will have a hell of a time getting it to boot.

Why is that? I heard the high voltage ones will work, it will just burn out the contacts. Unless your using one of the 1.8V kits and only giving it 1.65.
