New Build Turns On & Then Off

So it was my first build and I'm mind boggled, I spent over 5-6hours putting it together slowly (with breaks and what not)

The fans turn on and PSU runs but it keeps turning on and off (Fan has lights so I see it blinking), HDMI output shows nothing onto the IPS Monitor

Is there a system check list I can use to recheck everything? Power switch/reset sw works fine as I know thats working but I do have some connectors still left unconnected and unsure where it goes

ASRock Extreme6 Z77
2 x 4 GB Vengeance LP Black DDR3
Gigabyte Over clocked HD7970 GPU
Corsair TX650M PSU
2 x 500GB SATAIII
1 x 250GB SSD
NZXT Phantom 410 Case

Thanks a lot!

What does the Dr.Debug code on the board say? A list of codes is included in the manual.

Lights up then back off

Weird thing is I took it apart with same config with memory in etc and outside the case it turned on, cpu fan ran fine and debug showed correct error (no input) but when I put it in the case, it goes on then off

Sound like there was a short between the mobo (or other component) and the case....

make sure to use the brass stand, and check for the back of the mobo for any long component end that might touch the case..

Thanks!

Screw below the power button in the mobo was too tight causing it to power on psu start and cutting it out

Took me about 10 hours to solve that lol
