Problem with new PC build.

I just got done building my new PC. My problem is that when I turn it on everything runs for about a 1 second and then shuts off. When everything stops moving it turns back on for another second then it shuts back off and just keeps repeating this pattern. Everything is plug in correctly. The CPU led then the RAM led right after does light up but I'm assuming that is because of the lost of power because as far as I know if it was a CPU or a RAM problem the case fans would still run. I also think the PSU is running the whole time based on the fan but I'm not sure because that PSU fan is hard to see and it takes about 7 or 8 second to stop spinning. Also I'm worried that the H80 might be shorting it out because for some reason the motherboard doesn't have holds for the back plate. Not sure if that is part of the design.

Additional Details
Well I think I just narrowed it down to the CPU. I unplugged the CPU power connector and it ran fine. Plug it back in does the same thing. I still don't know what is wrong though. The CPU power connector only goes in one way. The heat sink is running. And the CPU is in the way it should be.
