I just started a new build for a friend with the EP43-UD3L every component is brand new. i can not get the board to post. I wanted to ask for a itemized list of things to check and eliminate to either get this board to post or RMA. I can get the power supply, heat sink fans and video card fan to spin up but no post or signal to the monitor. The memory and video card works perfectly in my computer. I made sure the CPU keying to install was correct. Need advice and guidance to get this to post. I am pretty sure if I get it to post I can take it from there. Any help is appreciated.

Gentlemen, this is "MY FRIENDS NEW BUILD I AM BUILDING FOR HIM". My build stated below which is 9 months old works perfectly We both have the same mother board and CPU but his other component choices are different then mine. So if you please can start from scratch on diagnosing the No Post but All Fans Spin question please as asked above.
So the question is I can not get HIS build to post but HS and RAM and Video Card fans spin up on pressing the power button but NO POST. I need a trouble shooting list to get HIS build to post and I can take it from there.
Out of the box minimal build for a start. You can put the board on it's box, a pice of cardboard. One stick of memory VGA card and the CPU, PS/2 keyboard preffered.
Check the M/B and CPU socket for visible defects (broken capacitors, bent pins etc.)
Make sure the CPU, VGA card and power connection are properly seated.
Load optimized defaults if you manage to boot, save and try to add another stick.
Since you have a working memory you can test with one of yours if his doesn't work.
Then another VGA card/CPU/PSU.
What kind of case he has? Does it has standoffs to mount the M/B?
Is there any signal from the VGA card?
