Today I started my new build, I tried an outside the box build (installed CPU, CPU Cooler, Motherboard, GPU and Ram) tried shorting the two started pins, and nothing. No beeps, no leds, absolutely nothing. I think it may be the PSU, but were not too sure.

Here are my specs:

Intel i5 6600k
Gigabyte H170-DS3H
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
MSI GeForce GTX 1050 TI
EVGA 500w Bronze PSU

I tried testing the PSU, it's not dead I'm just wondering if the PSU is not supplying enough wattage.
Thanks!

Try removing everything that isn't mandatory for it to run, IE GPU, one stick of RAM if you're using more than one, then reconnect the PSU. Do PSUs spin if not connected to a board in general?

Did you use a grounding strap? Are you doing this on a surface that can build charge?

Yes, the PSU works by itself, EVGA sends a tester with the PSU and it works...I'm working on the mobo box, with the static bag underneath, and then I have been touching metal, my case and PSU, like a mad man, making sure I don't discharge something.

Just tried using all of the necessary components, still nothing...I am so confused.

 

Can't see very much on that photo.
Please take another one from top, so that that gigantic cpu cooler doesn't obstruct the view.
Also - remove GPU,
connect PSU and
leave only one ram module.

BTW - I'd suggest changing postition of cpu cooler, so that airflow goes in direction to backside of pc.

Are you sure you're shorting the switch properly? I remember my first build I thought I was, however I wasn't, once I connected the case fan, and then the case switch and hit the case switch, I resolved my issue. Sounds like it could be MOBO otherwise.

Yes they are, we have tried it multiple times as well. I am shorting the CMOS pins. Maybe I'm not shorting them right? I am using a tiny flathead screwdriver.
 

CMOS pins?! No, that will not be right. CMOS pins are for resetting BIOS settings.
You have to short pins on F_Panel connector - Power Switch (PW+,PW-)
Consult motherboard user manual page 16.
