Adding to what DJBPace07 suggested, try running it on the table top, out of the case. Place it on some cardboard and just install the memory. If it turns on, add things back one at a time

What type of thermal compound are you using? You do not use a lot. A drop about the size of a grain of rice. See instructions herehttp://www.arcticsilver.com/arctic_silver_instructions.htm
Rule of thumb
Hook everything up but without the CPU installed and turn it on. If it turns on and remains running, you have a bad CPU
