What does work in other systems? The motherboard? If so, then that isn't the problem.
All you need to bench test a board are the following items: power supply,
Motherboard, CPU/HS/fan, 1 stick of RAM, Graphics card or onboard graphics, monitor, keyboard. Be sure you applied thermal paste to the CPU and connected the CPU fan to the header marked CPU fan. Also need to connect the auxiliary power connector to the motherboard in addition to the 20/24 pin main power connector. If you don't have onboard graphics and are using a graphics card that requires an additional power connector be sure to connect it too.
No other hardware, cards, drives, wiring, etc. To start the board momentarily short the two pins that are marked POWER.
If the board starts then you can install in case and retest with only the case to bard wiring added. Then if all is well you can add the drives and additional cards, if any. Do not add any external hardware other than monitor, keyboard and mouse until after Windows is fully installed.
