New CPU Build worked, now it just turns on and off every 2 seconds

I just purchased all the parts to put together a new computer, I installed all the parts and was able to install windows and all the drivers and everything. It was all working perfectly and last night I forgot to shut it down and it went into sleep mode. Now when I try to start it, it turns on for about 1-2 seconds and shuts down, and it will continue doing this until i turn of the PSU.

I have already tried resetting the Bios, checking all connections. I took the entire cpu apart and put it back together and found nothing out of the ordinary. I even tried to see if somehow the fan over the cpu was touching the case, so I took it off and tried to start it that way, it gave me the same result. Everything is brand new.

System Spec:

Intel I5 2500k 3.3g
Rosewill RG630-S12 630 W
Corsair 4Gx2 cmz8gx3m2a2133c11R
500 GB WD WD5000AZRX 64m
Coolermaster case

Any ideas on how I can get this to boot up again? It wont run long enough to get into any boot screens or anything.

I tried a new PSU and it didn't change anything. I am still having the same issue.
