    I purchased all new parts to put together here at home for a new PC. This is the first time I've put one together so I am hoping my problem is my own human error, and need some help finding it.

    I've installed all hardware, how ever when I turn the power supply on, and try to turn on the computer nothing happens. There are no beeps, the fans don't kick on, or anything.

    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145198

    Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115131

    Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128428

    Power: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371022

    Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156241

    Using a hard drive I already owned that is compat with this hardware.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated with my problem here. Thank you for reading.

    Do you have the case's On button hooked up to the motherboard at the right place? Is the PSU plugged in on the motherboard? Have you looked into the most logical reason why it doesn't power-up?

    At the top of the hardware page there is a guide for problem builds troubleshooting, its a good guide. From your post i think you have a connection problem. Re check all your connections.Did you use [stand offs] spacers between the board and the case?
