Does the new power supply power boot at all (direct fans... start working)? If you know the power button is good and has a good connection to the motherboard, the problem may be the motherboard since the motherboard sends the signal to boot the power supply.

The motherboard is the only barrier between the power switch and the power supply so it must be the motherboard. Are you shure the 2nd PSU works? I would test it in another computer first.
