I can already tell this isn't going to be an easy one. Let's try a few more things.

be sure that you connected the main plug (20 or 24 pin s) ...and the 4 pins for the HDD and the 4pin power for the disk drive ...another important thing for to work is to connect the CPU power ..cause it will not start without ..
check the cable from the monitor ..and if it makes a beep or two ..it means that it starts correctly and you have to see if the monitor is powered and the cable in place..
also check that the coolers are all spinning ..
in the end ..remove the BIOS battery and insert it back ..just in case you messed some settings or so ..and after that press f1 on start to confirm that you want to boot with the time unset..and set the Bios time from windows..
if anything is written on the screen ..read carefully ..cause durring the process something may been damaged and usually on the boot the computer will show you on screen what's wrong..

This could have a bad power supply (in this case I would try a new one just in case).
All other things being normal, I would guess a bad motherboard.
The best thing to do is disconnect everything but the CPU and memory and try to start it.
If it starts, then start connecting stuff until it doesn't start--this will tell you what is bad.
