I am building my own computer at the moment, but I am having an issue that is confusing me.

I have a new Asus Sabertooth Z77 motherboard, with 2x4GB Consair Vengence RAM. The power supply is a 750W OCZ Fatality Series PSU. For some reason I cannot get the system to power up no matter what I do. The CPU is properly placed.
The power indicator light on the motherboard is glowing green, but when I press the power button absolutely nothing happens. No fans start up, absolutely no activity what so ever.

Any ideas?

3 things to check. make sure the switch is flipped on back of psu, next make sure your connectors from the power button to mobo are properly placed. if neither isa problem verify that you dont mave a broken switch by testing.
