Hi guys,

So here it is... I just bought this :

LG 22X DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model GH22LS50 LightScribe Support - OEM
Intel Core i5-650 Clarkdale 3.2GHz LGA 1156 73W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80616I5650
COOLER MASTER Elite 310 RC-310-BKR2-GP Black with blue front panel Steel Body / ABS plastic front bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer
MSI N9800GT-MD1G GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
ASUS P7H55-M/CSM LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

My problem now is :

I think I have hooked up everything fine... (It's my first time with this kind of "new" technology. And I can't get it to start up... Power seems to be going trough the motherboard as the LED is opened. But nothing else go on when I hit the power button.

I'm wondering if that could be a Watt problem. I think the powersupply that is in the Case is a 420W.

Is that enough ?

Any beeps when you power on the system?

Make sure the 4/8 pin CPU power is plugged in. This is a very common mistake.

Actually I found the problem but I can't find how to resolve it... Whenever I screw the MotherBoard, it won't boot... :/

Make sure the brass motherboard mounts are under the correct motherboard holes. The correct holes should have silver soldering around them. If the hole doesn't have that soldering, you're shorting out the motherboard. Check out the pic here.

Yep, the brass mounting screws are kind of important. :D 

Check out that pic I linked. Make sure you put the brass mounts under the right holes.
