New psu/CPU and no post

So my specs are
I7490k replacing my i54590
H81m itx Mobo
8gb ram
Evga 850 psu replacing my 650w psu
Gtx 970

Now it all started when I got my CPU, I popped it in and the computer would boot but the keyboard, mouse, and monitors wouldn't power on and the PC would cut out and back on after about a minute or so. So I decided to go get a new psu. I install it and I get absolutely nothing when I hit the power buton. I was careful about being grounded and static esc. I'm at a lost. The 20(4) pin connector is in. The cpu connector is in. The two pcie are in for the GPU. Ram
M is in. I just can't figure what's going on.
Edit: I read somewhere that I may need to update the bios with the i5?

  3. Put the old one back in flash the BIOS then put the new one in. The old CPU needed BIOS 1.60 the new one needs 1.70

    Flash the latest BIOS 2.30 with the old CPU

    P1.70

    Needs to be updated with your old CPU , then install your new one.

  6. No. If the old cpu works then it'll work when you reinstall it. And once you update the BIOS the new one should work
