Check if the gpu is plugged in carefully. Check its power and if its in the slot. Then check the cables.

I already checked this connection's: The GPU, the power source and the memory. Everything is conected following the manuals.

If your 100% everything is plugged in properly than maybe your gpu is dead. You should get an rma.

I will try to test it in other PC. But assuming that's not the GPU. What could it be?

notice your CPU is a bulldozer, some older motherboard need a firmware update to be compatible.

I would say the RAM DIMM configuration. Make sure they are in the right slots per the motherboard's manual. Also make sure you have the 4pin / 8pin molex power connector plugged in on the motherboard.

I would think all of your hardware is good. It is pretty rare for someone to receive faulty hardware.

I check that the bulldozer is compatible with the motherboard. I connected the 8 pin cable, I connect the memory according to the manual of the motherboard. I have tried everything but I can not determine what might be happening.

compatible on the software side as well as hardware? as i said it may need a software update if it is made before bulldozer support was added.

otherwise try start with minimal amount of hardware. ie 1 ram stick, 1hdd ect, remove all the unnecessary stuff.

The problem was the version of bios. Now I have another question, the memories are of 1866 MHz but the bios shows 1333 MHz, when I change it to 1866 will not start.
