Evga p55 sli compatibility and why it's not working
I plug everything into the motherboard, flip the switch on the PSU, lights start on the motherboard, click the power button, fans spin up, more lights come on, then it stops, then evrything starts up again, then stops. I am completely new to tom's hardware and to bui;ding computers and i have no idea what's wrong. I checked to make sure all the power cables were plugged in but it didn't work. Right now i'm breadbording it and i was hoping some one could help me before i screw something up.
Thank you in advance.

Did you check the "Read before posting issues" or something similar thread in Homebuilt section?
From what you've described, I'm guessing you haven't plugged in the 8-pin power plug into the CPU 8-pin socket, near the CPU socket itself.
i did say everything was plugged in so yes the 8 pin power plug is plugged in. I also read the read before posting issues still having trouble.
