    Sadly, it looks like you have a faulty motherboard if you are sure the new PSU powers on with the EVGA test connector / paperclip test and you are shorting the right pins to turn on the PC.

    Is this your motherboard? H81M-P33 | MSI Global | Motherboard - The world leader in motherboard design
    If it isn't could you please find it on the MSI web site and give us a link?

    And is this your CPU? Intel Core™ i5-6500 Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.60 GHz) Specifications

    Do you have motherboard speaker attached? If you do, please remove all of the ram and try to start it. Yes, I know it won't start. I want to know if the motherboard gives a long series of beeps, which indicates the motherboard it doing what it should. But, you will most likely not be able to hear them without an attached motherboard speaker.

    Please also disconnect all hard drives, and anything else attached to the computer other than keyboard and mouse.

    I am assuming the computer tries to start. LED lights come on and maybe a fan starts moving?

    Yes, speaker is connected. Ssd, hdd, and gpu are not connected. When I short the pins, there is no beep still. No lights and the cpu fan does not spin

    Do you have standby power? Are you sure you are shorting the correct 2 pins? Check all of the electrical connections. Make sure they are connected in the correct orientation and the correct plugs. Make sure the 24 pin and the ATX 12V plug are completely seated. Also, no matter how this sounds as I have seen people do it, make sure the cable plugged into the ATX 12V is marked CPU and not pcie. If the graphics card is not connected, make sure it is removed from the motherboard. Plug the monitor into the motherboard.

    Alright! We have some major progress here I repeated everything, pulled cmos battery for 5 minutes and replugged the monitor in. There is still no display BUT there are 5 beeps then a reset then another 5 beeps and so on. While the beeps are going on, cpu fan is spinning and my mobo lights are on

    Edit: reseated not repeated *

    To mention, I did not reseat the cpu. Haven't touched the cpu, or the fan.
