Dear Experts,

I'm putting together a new-ish build (using PSU and Gfx card from previous build)

When i press the power button the following happens:

All fans are spinning (Chassis fans x 3 and CPU Heatsink fan)
Power to DVD drive (can eject)
No Display / No POST (tried 2 different displays TV & Monitor over different cables HDMI and DVI respectively
Onboard video connectors as well graphics card
No beeps even when there's no RAM connected

Components are:

AMD Athlon X4 760K (brand new)
ASRock FM2A78M Pro4+ (brand new)
CM Scout 2 Advanced Case (brand new)
Kingston DDR3-1600 2 x 4GB RAM (brand new)
Corsair TX 650W (from previous build)
Zotac GeForce GTX 470 (from previous build)

It's leading me towards an issue with the Mobo or Processor, but how can i tell which one?
I don't think there's anything wrong with the PSU or graphics card as i've just taken it out of a PC which was definitely working.
