I've just finished buiding my first computer but when I press the power button, no picture comes to my monitor

I looked at my Mobo ( Maximus gene V ) The debug code said 76, I looked at the manual and it said PCH DXE initialization ( PCH module specific )

I have no idea what PCH DXE etc means or what should I do, I need some help please.

Right. Some of the i5 CPUs require a BIOS update. So, in order to rule it out, what i5 do you use?

The CPU requires the 0602 BIOS rev. Can you check on the motherboard a sticker with a barcode? The last separated 4 digits stand for the BIOS version.

On the box or the Mobo itself?

On the mobo itself. It's a thin sticker.

Usually near the ATX 24-pin connector or near the PCIe slot. It might be covered by the graphics card.
Edit: It's near the 24-pin ATX connector.

The CPU is supported, so it's not a BIOS issue. Next step is taking the board outside the case and test it with a minimum configuration (one RAM stick, the integrated graphics, the DVD drive, keyboard).

so I'll have to take out the graphics card, disconnect the sata cables from the HDD? and a stick of Ram?

Yes. For ruling out a short it would be good to test outside the case.

Do I have to take out the Mobo from the case, It took quite a bit of time installing everything and I would like to find the easiest way to find out the cause of the error code 76

Check at least if there's an extra standoff that might short the case.

Only if the standoff doesn't match the right position (where the screw goes).
