New 3570k not booting.

I just purchased a new i5-3570k to build a new system. I assembled it all this morning, but it will not boot. When I press the power button it lights up and runs for about one second then everything stops. The red LED light on my motherboard that is for the CPU comes on. I have tried starting it with just one stick of RAM and no other hardware attached with the same result. I have also tried to start it outside of the case with no luck. I do not have another motherboard or processor that I could test with. Is there anything else I could try?


The hardware I am running is:

Asus Sabertooth Motherboard


16gb of Corsair Vengeance RAM

Rosewill 630w PSU

1.5tb HDD

Asus DVD Drive

Nvidia GT 460
