New build, no display through onboard graphics

Hi folks. I put together my first build and I'm still waiting for my GPU to arrive, eager to at least stress test the memory, I plugged a brand new monitor and I got no response when I turned it on. I've tried both HDMI and VGA and neither have produced any result through the MOBO. To answer all the questions I usually see on here, yes my 8-pin connector in the upper left corner is plugged in, I've tested my RAM using one card at a time in all four slots with no results. I'm hesitant to take everything back out on a hunch as it did take me quite a while. Thank you in advance.

i7 4770k
ASUS Z97-A mobo
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz
ASUS 24x Optical drive
EVGA 650W PSU
Corsair H100i cooler

    Remove your motherboard with CPU and ram out of your case,
    And try to start it by putting it on the box in which motherboard came in,
    If your motherboard is touching somewhere in case then sometimes PC doesn't starts.
  2. I'll give that a shot, at work currently, I'll let you know GhosT.

    You're my fucking hero bro. It worked like a dream, just need to get it back into the case and use less torque when tightening my mobo down.
