I've just put together my new pc, it's powering up, graphics card is powered, liquid cooling is working, 4/5 fans are working, and even some controls on the case are working. However, I can't seem to get a picture to my monitor. I'm just trying to get bios so I can begin working on my pc. Also I've been trying to get my mouse and keyboard connected (both usb) and my mouse will get power for a few seconds when I plug it into the usb ports, and I'm not sure if this is because of wiring. I have a feeling that both of my issues are coming from the wiring, but i'm not completely sure because the books and guides that came with my motherboard and case aren't specific enough when dealing with all of the wires. Appreciate any feedback.

Ok, the hardware looks good so far.

Is it possible to take a photo of the mainboard in your case? Just to see if the wiring is done correctly.
