What is the most likely issue here? im 100% sure that everything was connected right, this was the first time ive installed a processor and new mobo but i know how to fit things so i dont think theres a problem there.
reinstall your cpu and heatsink. Don't forget the thermal paste. U R getting power to the mb right....fans turning, lights on?
