Default New Build Power Up Issues

Just finished my second build and went to power on and all I got was the cpu fan start to spin then IMMEDIATELY shut off. The front power led comes on for a split second then everything goes dead. Any suggestions?

I also tried pulling the memory and I got the same result. After everything goes dead, if I hit the power button a second time nothing happens, not even a flicker.
