Do you get as far as the BIOS?

try 1 stick of ram only, swap out sticks 1 at a time.
are you sure you have 1.65v ram?

your board could be DOA.

also unplug the system and physically remove the power cord.
remove the bios battery hit the start button several times.
replace battery, plug back in hit start

Is the i7 definitely compatible? Sounds like the board....

Is it possible to experiment with the old processor?

sorry to hear that, it sounds like a bad MOBO if you've tried all the other possibilities.

you haven't bent a cpu pin or something like that when putting it in have you?

Is you cpu fan connected to the right place?

The pins are on the CPU socket not the CPU but they are still very delicate.

I'd take the motherboard out of the case, stip it down and re-build it on a bench/table making sure the CPU is correctly installed, the RAM is properly seated and all the connections are tight. Make sure the 24 pin ATX connector and the 8 pin ATX aux power connector are attached.
