As the title says, the new pc build won't boot. I press the power button, all the fans spi. Maybe once and the lights go on, and the other all turns off. And maybe a few seconds later it does it again. I've taken the mobo out and put it on cardboard, same thing. I have the graphics card removed now. I took the RAM out and tried each stick individually still nothing. I thought it was the CPU so I sent that back same issue, I tested the psu it works, tried a different one still happens. I'm at a loss at this point. Any help I'd appreciated.
Specs are:
MSI Z390 PRO mobo
Intel i7 9700k
x2 16gb G.skill ripjaws ddr4
Msi Radeon rx580

When posting a thread of troubleshooting nature, it's customary to include your specs to your build.
List them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:

What aftermarket cooler are you using for your build? See if loosening the rotation on each of the mounting screws for the CPU cooler changes the issue. Often times a very tight installation can prevent the system from booting.

Inspect the CPU socket for bent or broken pins.
