My new build computer wont boot

So, I just assembled my new PC. The mobo is the mpower z77. Further specs: i7 3770k, gtx 690 and the cooler is the silver arrow sb-e.

When I press the power button the CPU fans start spinning and quickly stop. The only light shining on the mobo is the power button and sometimes cl cmos.

I tried cleaning the cmos. Without succes.

Maby I'm missing something obvious?

  1. Yup missed something obvious. You skipped right over the sticky
  2. Ok. It seems like none of these work. Everything is connected properly. And even though when I turn the power on the only thing that lights up is the power button.

    When I press it nothing happens. Even the fans are no longer moving. There is no post beep from the speaker. I'm lost.
  3. Ok. I took everything out and I think I discovered the problem. My 24 pin connector wasn't fully secured. So only some LEDs light up. When I hold it in a specific way I manage to make all the LEDs light and fans spin. Still no post beep tough.

    The 24 pin connector is insanely hard to connect. I have a seasonic 1000W platinum. I managed to push it 2/3 of the way but the secure on the right side of the socket still doesn't clip in.

    And yes I'm connecting it the right way.

    I am afraid of damaging the motherboard with using any more force.
