Question about ASUS P5GZ-MX Motherboard
When i switch on the PC the motherboard comes up with no beep sound and the Processor fan spinning for seconds then the mother board automatically shuts down then.
Is it new? if yes, you probably connected the power supply wrong. most of these things are fine when they get shipped, there's just so many ways to not connect it properly that it's probably that. double check the manual of the mobo and the power supply and make sure youve got every connection right and tight. I have an engineering degree and I still forget to connect something sometimes, causing boot errors...
If it's not that, you have to think CPU connection or other peripheral connection is bad/defective/loose, and the motehrboard is just doing it's job by sutting down to prevent a fire. Doubel check your CPU connection. Did you use thermal paste? Is it snug/pproperly installed? An improperly installed CPU or other peripheral can cause spontaneous mobo shutdown, for good reason. The mobo manufacturer soesnt want you to fry your other components.
If not that, you may want to call your mobo manufacturer, you;'ll be surprised how willing they are to talk you through basic problems starting up. The lack of beeps or lights does bother me a bit in terms of pointing to a bad power connection, or a bad mobo. Usually you would rely on beeps and lights to diagnose what's wrong, as you know.
The mobo manufacturers are usually pretty good about shipping you a replacement if needed.

Check heatsink/fan for CPU first. If this is Ok then try a new power supply.
