CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Asus Z87-A ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Asus Radeon R9 280X 3GB Video Card
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922 ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair RM 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

First the CPU_LED lights up and turns off
After the DRAM turns on and turns off
Next comes the VGA_LED and also dissappears
A post boot beep happens
Then the boot device led stays on non stop and these beeps happen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teo81V8d_70

I tried booting without the gpu no luck same beep codes
Tried clearing cmos by removing the battery no luck
I reapplied thermal paste and checked the motherboard socket for bent pins didnt see any UNLESS I 100% have to use a magnifying glass I ddnt see any

What could it be and what could I try?

I have a wide cble plugged into the motherboard and a less wide one. Label eatxpwr and eatx12v

Nothing shows up on the monitor.

It seems thart after removing and putting the batter back in the pc turns on the leds light up and it turns off. Next it turns itself back on the leds turn on and off right away then a post beep it leaves the boot device led on and then I get the same old beeps I used to get or sometimes just one single beep after the post beep.

With you motherboard still out of the case, try booting with just one RAM module in each DIMM slot, like this:
[CPU] | _ _ _
[CPU] _ | _ _
[CPU] _ _ | _
[CPU] _ _ _ |

If you don't get a display with the first stick, try the second one.

Tried that still same error codes. If I plugged it into any other slot than a1 it did 1 beep after the post beep for some reason. I check and it says it could be a cpu error. Not sure what else it could be?

Nice! I know the feeling. It's a very triumphant feeling; calming, too, to know that you don't have to send your parts out for RMA; and even better, that you don't have to wait for new parts to finish the build. Grats!
