First time building a PC and USB ports don't work and nothing displays on my monitor

This is my first time building a PC! Let's start with my Spec list:

Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core

Processor Corsair H100i v2 70.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler

MSI Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM EDITION ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

A pair of G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 Memory

Samsung 950 PRO 256GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive

Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

WD 1TB Hard Disk Drive

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GAMING X 8G Video Card

NZXT Phantom 820 (White) ATX Full Tower Case

EVGA SuperNOVA 1000G2 1000W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

Samsung SH-224BB DVD/CD Writer

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro OEM 64-bit

The first attempt to put everything together i turned it on and everything lit up and all the fans were working but the USB ports didnt work at all front or back of the computer and the monitor didnt display anything. So then i ended up unplugging everything and going slowly through the manual and making sure everything is plugged in the correctly. Once that was all finished i plugged everything in and the same thing happened everything lights up and all the fans work but nothing display and the USB ports do not work. Please if anyone could help me figure this out i'd greatly appreciate it! I did trying plugging the monitor in the Graphics card and the MoBo but nothing on either end :( PLEASE HELP

    Try benching on a non conducting surface with only psu,cpu,cpu heatsink,motherboard and ram.

    So do you mean to only run those components or should i remove them from the case and test run them outside of it ?

    so take them out and test outside the case,a modmat is excellent but the motherboard box would be fine,Never use the antistatic bad though,no telling whether the outside is coated with a conducting film

    I have tried benching with just these parts and everything turns on and the fans work but nothing displays on the screen, On start up should the MoBo make any type of noise because mine does not. What should be the next step i take :/????

    have you tried all the steps in there?

    Clear bios
    check if cpu is inserted properly(It probably blew up at this point if it was in wrong orientation but just check again)


    Might suggest a Rma of the cpu/motherboard

    At this rate i would suggest just Rma components already
