A few updates though:
~He mentioned that he may have put too much CPU coolant on and it leaked off the processor (could this cause the problem?)
~He is exchanging the Radeon 7950 cards for 2 of the new gtx680 cards (personal choice from what I understand. Does he have to worry about SLI compatability with this Mother Board?)
~He has tested the PSU using the "paper clip" method, but I have doubts about its effectiveness..

I recommended trying JUST the PSU and Motherboard outside of the case with no cards plugged in. Only plug in the CPU/Fan and the internal speaker. This would rule out anything else if it still did not work, leaving only the PSU, Motherboard, or Processor. After that, begin pluggin in the cards and booting again. Starting with one Video card and ram stick, then more ram, then the other card and the rest of the ram.
I'll also recommend that he purchase a new PSU from a store to test it... couldn't hurt with a machine that has already cost ~3K...
