ASUS Z370e Strix No POST, No Error LEDs


Jul 11, 2015

I am currently in the process of a build involving these components:
ASUS Z370E Strix Motherboard
i7 8700K
ASUS GTX 1070 Dual OC
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB (2x8) DDR4 RAM
Corsair RM750x PSU
Samsung Evo 970 M.2. SSD
etc. other storage devices that are beyond the point.

The issue I'm having is that the computer will not POST upon pressing the power switch. Plugging in the power produces the RGB lighting and the orange PWR LED indicating that the motherboard is receiving power. None of the four error LEDs are lit up . At first I thought there was an issue with the PWR Switch front panel connector, but I'm not entirely sure.

Some points:
- Tried the system without the GPU and one stick of RAM, same result.
- Tried the system with no sticks of RAM, no error LED present
- Power supply was working a week prior
- No noise is made when connected to a speaker and switch is pressed
- No fans are working.

I'm a bit lost as to what my next steps should do since there are no indicators telling me what is wrong with the computer. Is it the motherboard that is faulty, or perhaps the CPU?
