Did you see any smoke at all?
Are you sure you put the connectors in right? Did you force any in?

No, no smoke, and all the fan connections are in correct, the 4 Pin mobo pin is in correctly, the 24 pin is in correctly, I disconnected the DVD Drive, the floppy disk drive to see if it was them, but nothing.

Unless you have a lot of parts to change out and test with. I suggest you get this to a shop. It sounds like the original PSU may have failed and could have damaged the new mobo and/or other parts.

You're joking? The shop would charge loads, and It's not my computer....

You are at a point that you could continue to damage more parts. You state that your experience level is beginner (we all were). This could end up costing you more than what a shop will charge. Just a recommendation.

Question from post #8. When you pulled the cooler, was the cooler heatsink the portion that was hot, or was the hot part the heatspreader of the processor? Heatspreader = top of processor.

The the most common problem people have when installing LGA processors is the cooler is not fastened down to the board properly. If the heatspreader was hot and the heatsink was cool of just barely warm you are not getting a proper heat transfer bewteen the heatspreader and the cooler heatsink.

Forgot to mention, if the cooler is not applying at least 17 (f/lb) of pressure to the top of the heatspreader the machine will not boot.
