Make sure all the components are in properly, double check RAM is pushed down all the way.

Did you plug in the 4/8 pin motherboard power plug.

Try reseting the bios with motherboard jumper/battery.

Do you have graphics card or unboard graphics?

List all the spec, including PSU.

Are there any beeps when you turn it on or is there an led error code display on motherboard?

First of all, did you read AND follow the guide at the top of the forum for problem builds?

Next list your exact specs. Post links to the parts you used. For example there are two different 955 cpus; a C2 stepping and a C3 stepping. The bios revision needed to run the newer C3 may or may not be installed on your board.

Next coolmax is ok for a budget type build to run office, play solitaire, etc. I would NOT be using a coolmax pw supply with a 6870 type card.

OK, you still have not answered if you have read and followed the troubleshooting guide.

Next coolmax does build some decent pw supplies however the one you linked to is not one of them. That is a pretty low quality unit.

Look in the motherboard manuel for how to reset the bios (clear cmos).

Antec is very good, i've got a corsiar one at the moment aswell.

You do not pull the battery to clear cmos. To properly clear cmos;
1 Pull out the pw cord from the pw supply
2 Hit the ON button 2~3 times [this removes all residual pw from the pw supply capacitors]
3 Clear cmos with the clear jumper for a minimum of 10 seconds
4 Replace jumper to the keep position and replace the pw cord
5 Pw ON and enter the bios. Load optimal defaults; save settings and restart. Done

Note asus calls cmos RTC or real time clock.
