Make sure your RAM is seated securely. Triple check all connections to make sure that they're all secure.

If you still can't get it to come on, then remove the board from the case, lay it on a piece of cardboard, and try to start it up.

take the board out of the case and remove all the components and try to boot up just the mobo with the cpu only ?

CPU/RAM and power connectors. If you have onboard graphics, use that as well.

I think the power button on the case might be faulty

can i switch the reset sw and the power sw cables on the mobo or do they each require different voltage?

(put the power SW in the reset SW slot on the mobo ?)

Just short the 2 power pins with a screwdriver or something to turn it on.

Touch the + and - power pins with a screwdriver or something metal at the same time; doesn't need to be for long.

That's all the power switch is doing internally, is temporarily connecting the 2 pins together inside the switch itself. You won't fry the mobo.
