Man, sounds like maybe a Power supply problem. What's your PSU rated? 350W? That setup, depending on what all you have connected might be drawing too much juice. Try disconnecting everything but the CPU, RAM, and Video card and booting up then. If you can keep it booted in BIOS without it crashing after a few seconds, then you have found your problem. If not, post back and we'll go from there.

well, that shouldn't be it. You took the stupid plastic thing off the thermal paste on the HS, right? I doesn't sound too much like a heat problem, but you never know.

The CPU is not recognized? Either you have the CPU installed incorrectly or the Mobo bad. Double check it, but I'd bet there is a prob with the Mobo.
