Help Please: Monitor Goes Into Power Saving Mode

ASUS TUF 990FX R2.0
Kingston 2 x 4GB RAM (on A2 + B2 slots)
ASUS HD 7770 1GB
Corsair HX850 PSU
Samsung 240GB SSD

I just put this together. The 6-pin cable is also connected to the GPU. When I boot, I see the TUF splash screen and can enter BIOS very briefly as the monitor quickly goes blank or into power saving mode. If I don't enter BIOS, monitor goes blank anyway seconds later.

I've tried using the VGA/DVI adapter, as well as another monitor. Same result. I don't have another graphics card to test and try to isolate the issue. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue? Anyone experiencing the same problem?
