Did you build it or someone else? If you built it, you could have not put those mobo mounting brackets in the case and your mobo could be shorting out.

I built it myself but some one was alongside helping me. The brackets have been put in and the mobo isnt touching the surface

Nice mobo.

Are you powering it with a 24 pin ATX connector (Near the green IDE connector) and an 8 pin ATX connector (Near the MOSFET heatsink)?

And double check the front panel connections.

Use a paperclip to jump the green wire to any black wire on the ATX power. If it starts, you have a dead mobo most likely. If it doesn't, then RMA the PSU nao.

Are you sure the fp headers are plugged in right?
