Ok, I was going to suggest PSU - Jump Start fans and lights should come on. You can skip the tape wrap part.
You are not getting anything to power on is that right?

One other thing and I hope it isn't it. The CPU may not be correctly seated in the socket, e.g. one side is raised or upside down.

I double checked it and made sure all prongs lines up. I am 99.9 percent sure it's a defective part at this point, sadly.

A few things.
What is the power supply you are using?
Does your power supply have a voltage selection switch on the back. Not the on-off switch.
The yellows wires going to the left top of your motherboard seem way to short. Is their a extension for that cable.
You stated that connector is a 4+4.
What is the total wires in that 4+4 connector.
Do all the holes in the connector have a wire inserted.
I'm still thinking it is the wrong harness or because of the tension on the short harness is not allowing it to make proper connection.

Is it possible to turn the power supply over with the fan on the bottom. Is their venting on the bottom of the case under the power supply to allow this to be done. It would bring the cable outlet on the power supply closer to the motherboard and the cable would not be pulled so tight.

Prongs? I thought you had an Intel chip, it has no pins on it, they are in the socket, very delicate and easy to bend.

Alright to you that responded, thanks. A few hours of frustration has confirmed it. The problem is the MoBo, confirmed by two stores, myself, and friends. Funny enough, a guy in the store with the same exact MoBo has the exact same problem. I'm getting a new MoBo right now, and I'm praying that's my last problem.

Also make sure you use only the mobo stand offs for this mobo. Count them up in each row and dbl. check that you don't have any extras !

Got the money- is it compatible?

I'll have the new motherboard tomorrow.

Oh, and I upgraded the RAM to 8gb of Kingston HyperX Blue RAM.
