Question New build not working 😭

Jun 2, 2020
It’s my first Pc build and I’m running to an issue...so I have everything in the necessary places the need to plug into and the cpu is in the socket properly( no pressure applied just fell right in)...gpu is in and everything but when I power it up...no display what so ever and i get one long beep and 2 short beeps. I don’t know whats going on, any help?
My build:
CPU - ryzen 5 3600
GPU - sapphire rx 470 4gb nitro
Mobo - MSI mpg x570 gaming plus
M.2 - SP 2280 256gb
Ram - Xpg z1 2x8gb 3200mhz


EPS/CPU 8 pin connector installed to the motherbd and not to the GPU? (people have managed to do this)
8 pin PEG/GPU connector installed to the GPU?

GPU & ram seated fully?

Please switch off or unplug the PSU to prevent shorting something out when you're working inside the case. They aren't really off anymore.
