If you get some activity we can work on what is broken but at this point the CPU, RAM, and graphics cards and hard drives are suspect. This is why we need to tear the system down and see what we can get it to do with just the basic setup.
The Nerd Bench: How to Bench Test a Motherboard
Me and my cousin just did that and we had no success, nothing happened, we think that we got a faulty motherboard (this is with the new motherboard not the old one, we tried both and nothing happened on either). What do you suggest I do? I think to contact newegg and get a replacement motherboard.

Did you try it without ram and without hard drives and CD/DVD drives connected (both connections SATA and POWER removed) no beeps no spin of the fans? While you are waiting for the moterboard I would RMA your RAM and CPU.
Try another motherboard then if that is not good the RAM and CPU are suspect. The CPU is (3 years) be covered by warranty with Intel, you could always return the CPU (obviously don't tell them about cans of soda). Same as the RAM, get an RMA and return it. Then connect motherboard, CPU Ram and video card only and it should fire up. Then add your components one by one. CPU has 3 year warranty and ram is usually lifetime. Hard drives vary and DVD burners are disposable basically 1 year.
Good Luck.

Yes, me and my cousin tried everything. My best bet is to RMA back the motherboard, RMA the CPU, and buy a new GPU. The ram is working, me and my cousin tried it in his computer.

The new power supply works great. I tested it and the fan spun up and powered the DVD drive.

So basically you now know through a process of elimination there ia a big possibility your CPU is dead. Yes the new MB could be bad as that happens but I am pointing a really big finger at that CPU. Do the RMA and get your new parts and before you build it back up in your case bench test it and add the hard drives and DVD and anything else one at a time so if it stops working you can tell the last thing you added is deflective.

I already shipped out the mobo for an RMA, I am planning to do the same for the CPU. As for the GPU, I am going to buy a new one. Me and my cousin tested the ram and the ram worked like a charm, no harm done to the ram. I think if I put in all three brand new, I will have a MUCH better chance of a boot.

Ok so I sent the motherboard in for an RMA and they accepted it, I am expecting the mobo to come in tomorrow, but as for the CPU, what exactly should I tell Intel? I want them to think that it was was not an accident on my part lol.

Tell them it won't POST. Tell them you have replaced Motherboard twice, PSU and tested the memory RAM in another PC and you would like the CPU checked out.

Man I already pumped 250ish dollars into this rig, now I gotta pump another 400 just to get it to run? Damn man... Also, do you think that the CPU can burn up the motherboard if I test it (I already tried and nothing happened as I said before). Because the last thing I want to deal with is having a brand new motherboard burnt up...
You've got a new PSU, New Motherboard...on this side you should be safe. Plugs are brand new.

I do not think that the CPU if it has burn out will harm anymore, unless some sticky stuff are stuck onto its pinned side, it just won't post. You could try swapped gently with a wet cloth and let it dry.

Remain the others hardwares. I suggest you to look at the Sata Power sides of every Hard drives you've got and do the same with slightly wet cotton bud and do the same for each fans if they do got blade that come off.

Clean/check all the cable connectors as much as you can of the PC Case the ones that plugs onto motherboards from the I/O Panel...Headphones, Usb, power, reset, etc....
Another thing you could try that might work is using a small bit of rubbing alcohol and gently going over the motherboard and other parts(cables etc.) The reason i say this is my brother has done this to clean system boards for mac laptops and it has worked for him doing that; so; seeing as how a lot of laptop system boards and desktop boards are similar; it may work.
