PSU and CPU on for 1 sec then off; won't POST

So this is my first computer build that I've ever done.

Right now I've assembled the motherboard, CPU, RAM, Video Card, and PSU. I believe I've connected everthing correctly, but when I short the two pins on the motherboard the fans on the CPU and PSU turn on for a second, then turn off.

I believe the motherboard is shorting out, but I'm not sure where the problem is. The board is sitting on top of the box it came in, so It's definitely not shorting from the touching any metal on the bottom.

I've read through some other posts on here and tried some suggestions but to no avail. If anyone has any advice or tips for me on what I should check I would really appreciate it.

Thank you!

UPDATE: I made a quick video demonstrating my problem

I've tried both of your suggestions previously. Still no luck. Thanks though
