Make sure everything is securely in place inside the machine. All power cables, molex, SATA, 4-pin, and 24-pin connectors. I had a similar problem. My video car wasn't latched all the way in

Just have cpu, ram and gpu connected for right now after reseating gpu and ram. Your board requires a 24 and a 8 pin psu connection.

I believe the gpu just requires a 6 pin pci-e connector from the psu.

Then see if you can get into bios.

If not pull the board from the case to ensure you mounter the mb risers correctly.
