ROG Stix Z790-i not booting after first powering on

Level 7

So I just finished my build (specs) below. The first boot up there is no lights on the motherboard but the AIO and GPU has lights and fans are working. Waited for a few minutes then everything shuts off. The monitor is plugged in the motherboard and the monitor recognizes that it is plugged in. I thought that it was a DOA board so I bought another Z90-i and same thing happened. reseatted the CPU, unplugged the riser and only used one stick of ram, also resetted the bios via the "clear bios" button at the back of the I/O panel of the motherboard, but same thing happened, no lights whatsoever on the board. any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
