    Did you connect the 4 pin cpu power connector ATX12V1 (No. 1 in manual page 9)? It won't start without it.

    Yes. All connections have been made. I calculated wattage @ around 235 needed to run, so psu should handle this. Or Should I have a bigger PSU?

    No, the PSU is more than big enough for your system.

    For Haswell-Refresh CPUs you need to upgrade to latest BIOS. Thus, you should first use an older CPU to be able to update your BIOS.

    There is a sticker on the uefi chip, saying something like '1.10'. What version is yours? For a i5-4460 you need at least version P1.80, as you can see here.

    Sticker is p2.20. So it is the most up to date bios.
