It's been 10 years but...that hardly seems like an upgrade. You lose 4 threads and gain lots of HEAT because Ivy Bridge was the first series of chips in the CORE era from Intel to use TIM under the hood instead of soldering. The Sandy Bridge i7-2600 was a legendary chip in many regards.

Now, about your problem...does the PC not POST at all? no beep and nothing on screen? have you tried removing the round battery from the motherboard and waiting a couple of minutes and putting it back in?
does the other CPU boot with the same RAM sticks? same PSU? have you connected all the ATX power cables to the motherboard?

Oh, wow. I mean, WOW!

The coincidence is uncanny: I have two systems with the above CPUs, and I was thinking about letting one go, and not sure which one to keep. This thread just confirmed it: the 2600K is a legendary CPU.

Y'all may find this interesting:

the PCIE 3.0 over 2.0 would be a very nice upgrade if you are running a graphics card like an RX 6400
also 3570 is lower on power draw, and if you were using the IGP, the ivy bridge IGP is better to use; but yeah, 2600 is a better CPU overall.

A retail box PC cost like $500 now and it maybe 20X faster then your setup that you have! Dump it and get to current technology! 10 years and in computers it like 20 years!

Sorry, but that's just wrong - aside from being an encouragement to needlessly destroy older, but still capable tech.
Yes, there will be major gains in performance, but not 20x times.
