Hardware problem!

I have this hardware:
BX80637I33240 Intel Core I3-3240 3.40ghz Skt1155 3mb Cache Boxed
KHX16C9P1K2/16 Kingston 16gb 1600mhz Ddr3 Non-ecc Cl9 Dimm (kit Of 2) Hyperx Plug N Play.
I installed a pci tester.
The problem is that when I turn on the pc, it turns off after about 10 seconds, then it switch's on, flashing the led "rst(reset signal)", without showing nothing on the screen.
The pci tester has this Leeds turned on:
+5v(power supply 5-volt positive)
+12v(power supply 12-volt positive)
-5v(power supply 5-volt negative)
-12v(power supply 12-volt negative)
clk(bus clock signal)
The led "run(bus pulse)" is off, instead of being on.

That's a CPU, RAM and some tester. Not much of a story there. Please forget all you know about this computer and use only your post as information. What would you ask the member to add?

Personally this is the first time I heard of such device. What does the instruction tell you to do when failure code don't light up. As you can see, that doesn't seem like a good piece of test equipment.
