Novice needs help. Brand new parts, just threw it together but when I press the power button the fans will spin for a second, shut down for a second, then it'll spin again. Won't reach POST, and just seems to keep restarting and cycling on and off. Antec Power supply is 750w earth power.

i7 860
biostar t55 board
4x2gb corsair 1600mhz 1.65v ram
Asus 7850 dc2 gpu
Zalman cpns10x extreme CPU fan
2x corsair force 3 120gb sad
in-win mana 136 case

did not use washers or grounding stoppers as case has raised points and supposedly doesn't need the motherboard mounts (CPU heatsink would also not fit if I used the mounting screws). motherboard has those metal covers where the screws go, so I went without washers.

Where could the issue be? There's no display and monitor doesn't display anything.

Thought that standoffs were unneeded if the case has raised points. If that's 100% the problem, then I've got to buy a a new CPU fan =[
