Check all of your jumpers and make sure they are plugged in properly. Also check to make sure that you didn't miss any of the power cables for the motherboard.

A couple simple things to try...

1) Make sure the PSU is turned on in the back and the voltages are set correctly for your country.

2) Make sure all the front panel connections are correctly connected to the motherboard as that could cause the problem. They're really small pins so you could've easily got a couple backwards.

lol are you sure you know what you're talking about? There's a big difference from a hard drive and a motherboard, and they are pretty far apart on the keyboard to make a typo. That sycks if your mobo fried, but how are you sure it's the motherboard?
