Does your graphics card have its own power connectors? If so, have you connected them?

Yes to the first, it comes with a power cable, Whether they have connected it though we'll have to wait and see.
Martyn SpencerSoftware Developer / Linux System Administrator / Managing DirectorCommented:
If the power connectors are not connected, it could well be that the graphics card is drawing too much of a load from the motherboard and this causes it to refuse to boot. Also, check for POST results from the board. Usually there is either an LED display, some LEDs or audible sounds that indicate a POST failure.

It's working now?
andyalderHaemorrhoids victimCommented:
manufacturer's website says cable included (although why since it normally just plugs into PSU and any cable is wasted)
Martyn SpencerSoftware Developer / Linux System Administrator / Managing DirectorCommented:
Sometimes a cable may be included to split a single connector into two. I guess they may also include one so it acts as an extension. If it's all working, great!
check also if the power supply can handle the load

Thanks for all the support, I went down to a where I bought my pc and get the pro to check and rebuild it. My CPU Fan didn't fully mount and Thermal Compound didn't apply becuase I though is kind of glue haha, heat prevent it from booting. Overclocked motherboard can go up to 70+ degree luckily my Intel CPU is not damage though have little burn only for few seconds.

I would not have expected that lack of heat sink compound being put in place would prevent booting due to overheating. The compound improves conductivity but not having any would still allow a degree of cooling, but it would not be anywhere near as efficient. Anyway, good to hear that the PC is up and running. Thanks for coming back to provide feedback. It helps us to work out how to ask better questions to lead to the root cause of the problem. Enjoy your new PC!
