Ok so I just upgraded to Haswell's I5 4670k chip with a MSI z87 G45 motherboard.
My psu is 600 watts bronze certified, non haswell ready or certified.
I put in my GTX 670 and I wouldn't get a display, monitor said no signal found, but there way power getting to the card, the fan was blowing, everything was seated correctly and so were the power cables. I even seating in different pcie slots. However it worked on my ASUS motherboard AM3+ no issues at all. I put in my HD 5770 and it booted up no problems asked on the intel board. So I have tried updating all motherboards drivers and bios and still was occurring.

So what might be the problem, the way I'm seeing it, it has to be the PSU because it's getting power but not enough to show display. And my case does have around 6 led fans in it, also with 2 hard drives 1 ssd and 1 mechanical green drive. Can I get some knowledge tips or opinions or something on this, I really don't have the money to replace my 670, but I am planning on upgrading soon to a EVGA 750 bronze certified haswell certified psu soon.

It's not your PSU. A 600W PSU can run any single card out there today. Hell, my OCZ Z-series 1000W runs both my HD 7970s in Crossfire with 3 hard drives, an SSD and an FX-8350 CPU. There's no way that your system with the GTX 670 would use more juice than your PSU could put out. What you have there is a complete mystery my friend. I don't know what the problem is but I can tell you that it's not a lack of power.

Well I'm gonna try it on a friends board and psu and if it does the same thing I'm just gonna take the money I have for the Xbox One and get a GTX 780ti and call it a day.

first off without the gpu installed does the onboard video work?? if it does go into the bios and change the primany display from auto/ipgpu to peg. if there no video output check that the eight pin power plug on the edge of the motherboard is plugged in. if there no video with the gpu try updating the bios last.

The on board video does work without a gpu. The 5770 does work on it without changing the it to peg, and I did try it earlier to peg and it still didn't work. And I already updated the bios.

check for dirst in the top pci slot and check for dirst/figerpints on the 670. if you can use a paper towel and rubbing alcohol and clean the contacts. in the bios turn on muilt monitor and see if the gpu turns on.
also see if the motherboard if you set the video slot to pci 2.0 mode the card comes on. also check to see your 670 one of the cards the video card vendors were caught over volting. some have posting issues with some motherboard.

Check your BIOS, make sure it's not trying to pull from your integrated graphics instead of the installed graphics.

His integrated graphics are not the issue. He has stated that his Radeon HD 5770 works just fine. If the BIOS were the issue that way, the HD 5770 wouldn't work either.
