I need some help:
I plug in the everything but the CPU PWR1 and it lights up like the Vegas strip but the PC does not boot.
When I plugin the CPU power cable the PC does not light up nor does it boot when I hit the power button; it just clicks and does nothing.
Not sure what I am missing here.
Here is my PC parts list:

What GPU(no gpu in the list)? Do you get a code on the diag led?
It was hidden in there for some reason, weird: its the Asus GeForce RTX 2070 8 GB STRIX GAMING Advanced Video Card
For the Diag lights, there is no lights that come on and no code displayed nor do any lights come on

Really nice looking build JaeSajor.

That is odd. Have you tried plugging in both 8 pins? Your psu has them so it's worth a shot. It's a 3700x so the power draw shouldn't need both but didn't see this issue on a quick Google search.

No extra motherboard standoff's touching the back side of the board causing a short?

Thank you !
Nope, I tried with both, 8pin to MOBO and the 6 to the PSU and viceversa since i thought i was plugging them in wrong... but i tried to just one, i tried to just the second and i tried to both.
I checked the back as well but the standoffs leave quite a bit of room that nothing is really touching.
I also tried unpugging the power from the peripherals and leaving the CPU PWR1 connected and it still just clicks but no boot.
