[SOLVED] Gigabyte B450M no display on monitor

EVGA 750W Psu
24GB DDR4 all working
RX 480 8GB Gpu
B450M Mobo
Ryzen 5 1600 Cpu

For the life of me I cannot get this thing to show display!
My first mistake was bending the Ryzen pins, but I successfully straightened them again without breaking a single pin off of the Cpu. There was also some thermal grease that somehow made its way onto the board, however I cleaned it off with a paper towel. The Gigabyte mobo is new and was working great until I tried to install liquid cooling... it didn't go very well (my case does not support it). So I switched back to an air cooler, and my problems started getting worse. The blue LED light on the cooler started flashing then quit. I swapped it out for the stock wraith stealth cooler and now I have no display on my brand new monitor. While I was installing the liquid cooling, I had help from my wife and she touched the cpu on the back of the mobo. Everything spins, even the RX 480 8GB fans. I am still trying to locate my speaker so I can hear the error beeps and target the problem properly. I put a new battery in and cleared the CMOS with a screw driver.

HELP!!!

Turns out my used RAX 480 8GB Red Devil had a missing screw on the bracket. I tightened it with a new screw and still no display. All 3 fans are spinning and I am wondering about that BIOS switch on it.

Yes, I have tried both outputs with no effect from either. I also replaced the CMOS battery again with a new one. The card does heat up and all fans are spinning. Re-seating the RAM again and clearing the CMOS with a jumper.

Either check that you installed the memory modules in the correct configuration of 2x8 in A2/B2 and 2x4GB in A1/B1 slots or remove one of the kits and install the other in A2/B2 slots. Post the model of the motherboard so we can look up the manual. You should read the manual as well.
