Quite honestly, I don't think the CPU has ANYTHING to do with whether a PSU will turn on or not.
It does turn on, but only for a very small moment. The psu fan, the cpu fan and the power light all switch on for about 1/10th of a second and then switch off. I would also find it weird if the exact same problem occurs with 2 different power supplies, though i guess it's not impossible.

About the overclocking of the E6400, I have absolutely 0 experience overclocking (but very willing to learn), is it hard?
As for a decent motherboard, any recommendations in the region of 150 euro? currently looking at the specs for the asus p5b, seems to be quite good.

Thanks for all the assistance, really appreciate it..
