Where do I begin?

I have just assembled my newest computer creation. It's based on Gigabyte's GA-Z77X-D3H mobo, an Intel i5 3570K processor, and Kingston Hyper-X RAM. When I first tried to fire it up, I got no video (I'm using the Intel integrated graphics). I've put together numerous systems over the years, but I've never had this problem, and I don't know where to begin. Is the problem most likely with the CPU (I could swap it out for another), the motherboard itself, or perhaps the RAM is incompatible (KHX1600 C9D3K2/8GX). Ideas, anyone?

could be bad ram overall test with one stick or different ddr3 if have some. Could be a bad board. Only three things that can rlly be wrong would be ram/motherboard/psu. psu can be tested in another system, and ram if u have some. Throw in a motherboard speaker and listen to the beeps

Thanks. I'll try some G.Skill ram I have. I'll look around for a m/b speaker. I know I have one somewhere; just haven't used it in a long time

intel systems are not suppose to use 1.65v ram but it shouldnt be much of an issue

Thanks, swifty. Yeah, the QVL does specify KHX1600 C9D3LK2/8GX (NOT C9D3K2) I'll try that as well

Thanks, lazyboy. My G.Skill memory is 1.5 volts, so I'll try that
