I have just upgraded my motherboard and CPU, everything turns on, lights, fans, usb. However, zero feedback to my monitor not even a flicker.

Everything else is working, plugged in yadda-yadda-yadda. (Ram tested in each slot)

So which is most likely a DOA? Gonna RMA so just wondering which sounds like the culprit here.. or I could just RMA both. Just want some opinions here.

I have never heard of anyone getting a bad cpu, but I have heard of them receiving doa motherboards. Since it all turns on, but without display, I think they are both good.
How about more info. What board, what cpu..basically your whole computer specs

Try re-seating your RAM. I was working on my PC once and took the RAM out, when I booted the computer (with all the RAM in) I didn't get any display at all. Just took it out, wiped it, and put it back in and it worked fine.

New stuff:
AsRock 970 Extreme 3
8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600
Phenom II 965BE

Old stuff:
Corsair GS700 power supply
Nvidia 9800GT

I've put the RAM in multiple times in all spots, especially in the slot recommended by the mobo for first time boot.
