Help My PC will not Post

Ok, So I recently built a PC the parts are...

CPU: Intel i7 5820 GPU: MSI 980 ti PSU: Corsair RM 1000 Kingston Hyper X 8g DDR4 Motherboard: MSI Gaming 9 ACK

Well after I had build it, I powered it on and surprise!, it wouldn't post. By the Led, indicators it wasn't registering the graphics card, and yes I tried all the PCI E slots. So then I though ok its either a problem with the card or Motherboard, I was already going to replace the Motherboard for completely unrelated reasons involving a loose screw, so I ended up RMA-ing both. So after all that hassle I assemble it all back together, and guess what happens, the same thing. So then I thought, well that leaves the PSU, but I've never heard of this happening before. All the lights came on, and the board powered up so what was wrong with the PSU? I tried using multiple and different PCI Express power connectors because the cables are pretty poor quality, and different type 3 power slots out of frustration, but nope same result. As of now I already filed a return/ replacement with Corsair, but now I'm skeptical. Is the problem due to the type of PSU, is the PSU incompatible with my graphics card, and I should have bought a different one? I also think it could be to the surge protector I'm using. The minimum input is AC 100~245 for the PSU and the surge protector outputs 125volts. Could this be the culprit of the improper functioning? Thank you in advance!

Did you try the paper clip test?

could be something causing a short even. in any case good job on the psu rma. the RM1000 is the one that really has mediocre performance out of the bunch, especially being such a hig capacity psu and I hope you are getting an RMx or RMi 1000 back (make sure of this). try a different surge protector and outlet. try taking the motherboard out of the case a booting.
