This is my first build and I have connected everything in the computer to the mother board and it will not power on. There are not lights on the case and the power button dose not work at all.

Is the PSU switch...in the "ON" position?  Two connections from PSU to the motherboard?

Following Hamlius' lead about checking power supply connection to motherboard, I recommend removing everything externally and internally, leaving only the motherboard and power supply to start this "bench build," "test build."  If you get the proper beep code with mobo and ps, add one stick of RAM at a time, add keyboard, add mouse.  At each successful beep code sequence, add another item. From another computer, get the beep codes for the specific motherboard.  And, there is one more very excellent hardware/software giant in addition to Hamlius -- [not me!] -- post a brief list of the specifics on the motherboard, power supply, RAM, video card, sound card, hard-drive[s], cd-dvd drive[s], and if you're using PS/2, USB, or wireless keyboard and mouse.

Ok so it looks like the motherboard can handle ram with more than 4 gigs a stick so that was what was preventing it from posting and I had too much thermal paste in the cpu
