This is a new set up, had a bad mother board and replaced it.
Putting it all together again, power seems to be on, but when pressing the power utton, nothing happens
it is an ASUS Maximus V Formula board and an intel I7 3770k proccessor

Then it might be a power supply issue. Do the CPU and the case fans spin when powering up?

Check the pinout here http://www.google.ro/imgres?q=atx+24+pin+pinout&num=10&...(24-Pin).gif&w=400&h=400&ei=sCmVULPcDMbMsga4ooDABA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=627&vpy=159&dur=946&hovh=225&hovw=225&tx=132&ty=98&sig=114668243684348730146&page=1&tbnh=139&tbnw=143&start=0&ndsp=30&ved=1t:429,r:15,s:0,i:111. Make sure you don't choose wrong pins (connect 16 with 17).

try counting the wires, to know where place the clips. or maybe the power sw is bad,
temporarily connect the reset sw. as the power sw.

Maybe you haven't hooked up the case's power button to your motherboard correctly? I've done that before and thought I screwed up my processor.

Check your p.c isnt earthed ..... Also do try clearing the cmos it might be the problem with the c.p.u voltage .

could be the motherboard standoffs? or would the MB lights still light up if one was touching the MB in the wrong place?

Yes, it might be a short related issue. Try testing the board outside of the case. Remove the power and reset connectors and power the board from the motherboard's power switch.

see newegg reviews ? the first 5 were bad eggs right off the bat. (ASUS Maximus V Formula)

next rma put an indiscreet mark on the mobo so you don't get the same one back.

personally I'd choose something else.

The Power supply was faulty. The low level was not supplying sufficient power to handle the Motherboard.
I replaced both the Power Supply and the Motherboard, and the machine now works properly.
Thanks for your help.
