Did you use the new cables that came with the psu? Remove the gpu and change the monitor cable to the motherboards onboard port. See if it will start up like that.
I did use the new cables and i already tried to unplug the gpu and connect the cables to the motherboard my ram is good and my GPU and PSU are new got them yesterday the motherboard and the CPU are old i think thats the problem i also think they are too old and not very compatible to run with the new PSU and the GPU do you think it might be the motherboard after all ???
BTW thank you for the comment :)

Turn off the power supply using the switch on the back then unplug it from the wall , plug it back in and turn the switch back on then try to turn the PC on.

No fans or anything right?

Remove the front power switch from the case to the motherboard and short out the power pins to turn it on.

Also next test the new PSU. This is not a absolute test and if you have a Molex fan plug it in as the fan on that PSU should only turn on briefly.

If your power supply does nothing, remove the video card install your old power supply, plug your monitor into the motherboard and try to power up. ( this will take both of the new parts out of the problem)

You never listed the old power supply so not sure if I would try it with the new video card.

Report back listing your old power supply would help from this point forward if the PC booted without the video card and using the old power supply.

Do as I said above.

EDIT if it will turn on with the old PSU and the video card removed then use the old power supply with the video card added, monitor plugged into the video card again.

From their install the new power supply with the new video card removed and try the motherboard built in graphics (monitor pugged into the motherboard)

From their if it boots keep the new power supply installed and use your old video card if you had one.

Trying to fix things over the net takes 2 people to do it's a process.

From just what you said it does sound like a motherboard problem but most of the time they don't just fail out of the blue but it is possible.

For your parts list your going to need a good cooler for the 10700K and I would be looking at a Z 490, 590 board.

The box avengers edition is a complete waste of money.

In the US that box cost like 70 bucks more when you don't even get the game.


Picture of the box from amazon it clearly says game not included.

I don't think that cooler will cool the processor either.
