That is definitely a monster machine and sorry to hear you're having issues. What I would do is strip it down as much as possible, start with one stick of ram. If it still doesn't post remove all drives except one Samsung 1TB drive and any usb devices besides your mouse and keyboard and see if you can get it to post.
1. Is that a single 128GB kit?
2. Have you populated the 8 pin and 4 pin power headers on your motherboard?
3. Have you populated the EZ Plug header on the motherboard that provides more PCIe power for SLI configurations?

Does the motherboard give you any readout on the led display when you try to boot?
If you're not getting any code at all you're on the right track to think it's the motherboard or psu and/or the 15 amp converter.

If you're getting codes that's a good sign, as to what is causing it to shut down it's pretty much a guessing game without other components to test with but you're getting it narrowed down. A 4GB stick would be worth a try to rule out the 16GB sticks possibly causing the problem.

Just to be sure you updated the bios correctly did you do it like this in the guide? You want to rename the bios file to R5E.CAP
