Just finished a new build, however there seems to be no power running. There are 0 signs of any power. psu does not make a sound, no led lights on mobo or fans spinning, no sounds also. I have both power cables plugged into motherboard as well as everything else plugged into power supply. I'm guessing its a power supply issue however I'm not really sure. If anyone could offer some advice I would appreciate it.

sounds to me PSU may be dead. I know this sounds noob but check that both ends of the power cord are seated right and powerstrip/lightswitch on the wall is on. Other than that if you verified not even the psu fan is spinning then time to RMA
The two pins on the motherboard where you hook your case's power button to. Should be a plus and minus. Unplug the case power button and take a flat head screwdriver and touch the two leads together for a second. That does the same thing as your case switch does.
Did you say you tried to power on the PSU with the paperclip trick to check it? Your problem could be the motherboard as well.
the asus mb should have a green power led with no cpu installed or ram.you can flash the bios using the bios flash back and no cpu. if the power supply turns on with the green wire check for dead shorts..missing standoffs or bent pins on the cpu/mb.
