I took a picture of my build please excuse the messy wires for now.
that happened to me on one of my 1st builds years ago ......
get that cardboard box out
And start over ....
did your MoBo come with a tiny speaker ??
that will beep a problem code on start-up
alot of new MoBo's don't include them anymore
......... open a running PC & borrow one if need be ....
my last 2 didn't have the speaker ...
read the Gigabyte MoBo manual again only read the assy part & follow the directions to a tee .
IF you can then get the mobo & all parts working ,posting even starting to load the OS .. then the problem is how you mounted the mobo into the case
You did use the brass stand-offs under the mobo ?? to keep the back of the MoBo from touching the case Right ?
report back .... More than Happy to help .. I've been there, done that & wish someone could of helped me years back ..
unhook everything ....attach one component at a time double check everything as you go
