power problem??

power problem??
#1
My current build:
ASRock Z370 Killer SLI/ac
Core i7 8700K (NOT OC'd!) w/Cooler Master Hyper 212 cooler
4 sticks Corsair Vengeance LPX 16G memory
multiple drives including 2 m.2 NVMe (Intel 1TB & Samsung 500GB)

problem is, I have power at the mobo (turn on the PS and the lights around the chipset come on), but when I try to turn on the computer, nothing happens.
Thought maybe it was the power switch in the case (since lights coming on), so I salvaged one from another case and plugged it in - nothing
Tried changing the PS - still nothing
At this point, I'm down to the two most expensive parts of the build. Either the CPU or the mobo, unless somebody has anything different to add? I'm stumped and can't afford to replace both components at the moment.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi,

Have you confirmed that all the ATX power connectors are plugged into the motherboard? There should be 2 connectors that the PSU connects to the motherboard with.

Also, are your case or cpu fans spinning up when you attempt to power the computer on?
You could try clearing the cmos again, and remove your RAM modules and try using just one.
You might also confirm your RAM with the list for the motherboard here, and check the slots for correct configuration.

According to ASRock website, the memory [as listed above] is on their list of accepted memory (I checked all of the compatibilities before I purchased the parts).

Both the 24 pin power and the 8 pin CPU power connectors are firmly connected.

As stated above, with the power supply turned on (the switch in the back), the mobo LEDs come on, but when I hit the power switch to turn on the computer, nothing happens - no other lights come on (i. e. the power indicator light at the power switch), no fans spin up... nothing.
