New builds are a major part of my service. First, assemble everything outside the case. Only the bare essentials to start. MOBO, one memory card, keyboard and video card if not on MOBO. Get that to start first, then add a CD/DVD drive to boot from and finally a hard drive. The starting and the stopping of the fans is an indication of a shorted power supply and the main cause in new builds is a miss placed standoff shorting things out, thus the assembly outside the case. The MOBO manual should identify the proper mounting points and those that require grounding.

Good deal when i teach how to build, one of the most essential parts of that is learning that when something is wrong, simply go back over it and do a quick rebuild. Because when you do that you reseat your compemenets, and you also again reattach all the PSU/CASE wiring. In many cases that fixes it. Happy computing!
