Too many things to list

Does the mobo BEEP? If not it may be dead or incorrectly configured.

First off pull out everything unnecessary, modems, sound, nic, etc. Than disconnect the hard drive and cd-drive from the motherboard.

Try firing it up.

If it fires cabling might be wrong of one of the components is either, dead, incompatible, or not seated properly.

If it doesn't beep and still doesn't fire up take out the video card and try turning it on. If it beeps your mobo lives but your video is either dead or incompatible.

No beeps still? Ram or cpu not configured/seated properly, or your mobo is grounding to the case somewhere or it is plain dead, occasionally a bad psu can cause this also.

And remember, NEVER run any system without a heatsync fan even to test as it will die.

Cheers

I'd start the process by removing the MB from the case, and firing it up on the bench with nothing but the keyboard, speaker, video board, and the monitor attached. Try to get the MB functioning before you start adding other stuff. If it works on the bench, put the same configuration into the case and get it working there. Then, you can start adding the other parts.
