Does any of the mobo lights come on? Do not know a lot about that psu, but I have the Corsair RM850i and the fan hardly ever comes on even under load. To me it sounds like you may not have the mobo properly grounded, look at the manual that came with it and make sure you have all the screws in the correct holes. My first build I had a similar issue and it was just a grounding issue, ie I had to many screws in the mobo and it was shorting out.

Sorry to hear of your problems, don't get discouraged. Believe this or not, right now you are in an accelerated learning process which will pay off big in the future. If you really want to learn fast, troubleshooting problems is the best learning process there is.
Here is the technique I use in a new build, and it also describes the testing techniques that I use when a repair comes in. This is a generalized process, but it is called a "bench build" technique and is designed to find equipment problems before you get the whole thing together.
still not turning on
Is the unit totally dead and unresponsive? If there is a power lamp on the mobo, does it light?
> Have you correctly connected the front panel power switch cable to the proper socket on the mobo? Those connectors can be confusing.
> If there is a power-on/off switch on the power supply (rear of the case), is it turned to on? Easy to overlook.
> Did you use standoffs when mounting the mobo? sorry for asking the obvious, but we have to cover all the basics.
