Trouble with powering up

Trouble with powering up
So I got most of my hardware today (only missing GPU) and I hooked up all the connections. I get no response from the PSU and have disconnected and reconnected everything twice now. I'm very frustrated and seeking some possibilities to resolve my problem. Could it be that the PSU is DOA? Is it not getting the minimum load to turn on? Or something else?

This is the hardware
Intel Core i5-2500K
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155
Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200 RPM
COOLER MASTER HAF 922
ASUS DVD drive
I have done everything stated in this post computer wont start. I guess I got a bad PSU or MB. Will probably just send them back to Newegg for another set.

This is not to insult you or anything, but I did the exact same thing myself when I started building and it didnt even occur to me to think of this.

Since you dont have a case or something, did you actually hit the "power button" on the mobo? I switched the PSU on, and expected it to light up, and completely forgot about that super simple thing. The power buttton was underneath my GPU, but that was because I had a P67 mobo and it had no vga port for the internal gfx.

Other than that, if its not the power button issue, do you get any response from the PSU whatsoever? Fans spin? Do you hear it buzz?

One thing you could do is invest in a power supply tester if you dont have a multimeter lying around. They run no more than $10 bucks. For me that would be preferable than sending both back without knowing the reason.

Another thing to check that may be not on the list is the power cable to the Psu, did you switch it with another one lying around?

RE: Trouble with powering up
Yeah I tried using a different cord that I knew work wasn't that. I might just take it to a guy and see if he'll test it for me

RE: Trouble with powering up
Assuming that you plugged in both the 8-pin and 24-pin power connectors to the motherboard, it sounds like a DOA power supply to me.

It'd be unfortunate, but those things just happen, electronics are fragile and shipping company can be very rough on them.
