Hi Guys,

This was my second build ever, my first rig was built about two years ago. I put everything together, ran the wires and plugged everything in. In my mobo I made sure to connect both 8pin power connectors and the 24 pin power connector - I also plugged in both 4 pin connectors as I am running 2xHD5970's.

When I turn on the PSU, the mobo lights come on properly

The problem is. When I press the power button, nothing happens at all. I am new to building computers so I figured you might be able to help as I worked on this for 6 hours last night and even broke it all down and put it back together again, and still the same problem.

Please Help! Thanks in advance!

I have posted specs of this rig below if that would help as well:
