    Hello @eddie! Welcome to the Community. 

    I realize you made this post a couple days ago so you may have already gotten your answer, but from the pictures you posted it looks like you just forgot to plug in the 8-pin CPU power connector on the top left corner of your motherboard. 

    We also have a guide here that will walk you through other troubleshooting steps if you have more issues getting the system to boot.

    Hi @eddie!
    I'm new to the community so I apologize for the late comment. If it isn't posting, but it looks like it's turning on, it could be the g.skill memory. My rig wouldn't post at first. I have a Ryzen 5 3600 with the 2070 super GPU. The Micro Center tech team checked with other memory and it posted. They let me swap the RAM with Ballistix.

    I have highlighted the area Tony has referred to. Missing these power connectors are for sure the issue you are experiencing.
