PC crashed and now it wont boot up again

Was just using my PC (playing apex and had a twitch stream up) and it all of a sudden shut off. Just went black. MB LEDs stayed on but now it wont turn on again. I turn off psu switch and back on, mb leds turn on and when I press power, the power button led on my case briefly flashes as if it's about to power and I hear a brief click in the back but nothing boots up. Fans not spinning and mb q code doesnt display anything. Tried clear CMOS, reset and start buttons on MB but still nothing. My build is linked here https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JzHXGG . I'm assuming this is a motherboard or cpu issue and will have to be replaced. Any insight would be helpful before I purchase a new one and rip my rig apart though. Dont have any other machines I can troubleshoot with at the moment. Thanks in advance!

Pulled the GPU and used on board graphics to boot and it started right up. Hope this helps anyone with a similar problem. Didn't know GPU could short out a boot like that. Looks like I'm upgrading my GPU!
