Hi, and welcome to Bleepingcomputer! I think your processor is overheating. Take the thermal paste off your processor and heatsink, and put new on. I'd recommend arctic silver 5 , but if you want it now, Best Buy sells Dynex brand kind which is alright.

Does it run long enough to hear a post beep? Double-check all of your wiring connect and make sure they're in the proper plugs. Try it with everything disconnected but the memory then add things back one at a time. It would be better to do this out of the case on the bench top. in case the motherboard is grounding out on the chassis

Did you remember to connect the 4 pin cpu power connector, and the PCI-Express power connector? I also agree with Sterling14's, and garmanma's suggestions both those will lead to the computer not staying on for long.
