New PC won't start

So I'm building my first pc but after putting all the parts together it won't turn on. The cpu fan works for about half a second then stop.

Part list is here

Would appreciate any help getting it to work :)

Is the motherboard ready for a raven ridge CPU? did it have the sticker?

It doesn't say that is ready for Raven Ridge so does that mean I need to do a bios update

Yes, but you'll have to get an older chip (boot kit), or send the MoBo to a local PC store for a BIOS update

yes. you can either go to a store and ask for them to do it which will cost money or send a request to AMD and they will send you a CPU to update the bios with.
