So, I just finished assembling my PC, get it plugged in and turn it on, and then nothing. Fan's start spinning, none of the problem LED lights up, so I turn it off and try to see if I missed anything. I did, the EATX 12V_2. I get that plugged in, reconnect power, and now the motherboard doesn't even power up. My question is, do I have a faulty board, or do I just need to take it apart and just check if I missed anything. Any help would be appreciated!

Troubleshooting threads like this require a complete detailed list of all the parts used. If any parts are used from a previous system that should also be indicated.
 
And also...follow the new-system troubleshooting guide here:

And consider doing a bench-test first. That entails pulling it out of the case, laying the motherboard on top of it's box and then hooking everything up outside and testing it there first.

I ran down the list to troubleshoot it. Amazon has sent a replacement already, and same problem. The RGB on the motherboard lights up, and when I hit the power button, the GPU and the chipset fans fire up for about a second before turning off. The Q-LED's don't turn on to point me in the direction of what I need to do.
