Completely and utterly stumped

Made a new build, PCPart picker says that all the parts are compatible. Looks like it should use only 240W and I have a 500W power supply. Yet every time I try to turn it on, you see the motherboard light up and immediately go off. Pressing the power button, the fans and leds turn on for a few seconds and then cut off, a few seconds after that they turn on, and then just repeat that cycle. Obviously nothing comes up on any monitor plugged into. I have tried removing my RAM, Video card, and unplugging my SSD from the power, but still the same cycle while turning off and on. I am just completely bamboozled.

Edit: after reseating every component, the LED's are consistently on. Will have to plug into output monitor to verify that everything in working.

So are you saying you reseated them, or did you remove them?

I removed them all to try to determine that none of them were causing the power to turn on then off.

Plug in the 8 pin CPU power

The motherboard now flashes red before turning off instead of white with the 8 pin CPU power and 24 pin and thermal fan plugged in.
