Below is my PC parts:

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/VbxGpG

Here is the problem description:

PC Assm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RDxhtxqB-c dark rock pro 4 install: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pLbEQ3T-iU

I followed the above two video word for word on how to install my PC. The parts were picked according to the first video.

My symptoms are after pressing power button on PC case:

IO ports are not working at all, monitor says displayport has no signal, mouse and keyboard are not working no power seems to be coming out of the IO ports of the motherboard.

All fans are working (PSU fans, case fans, and dark rock pro 4 is working and seems to be spinning up to max (quite loud))

Graphics card is working fine, fans are on and spinning as far as I can see, but when plugging monitor into it's displayport, also says no signal. I then tried to plug the displayport cable into the GPU, but still no signal.

Is there any chance the PC assembly video is not complete? Are there more cables to plug in? There are more cables left I didn't use. I triple checked the video and I did everything he did in the video.

I took a video of my PC after finishing assembly

While trying to plug in the CPU power into the motherboard, I did scratch the back of the motherboard (No visible scratches.), could this possibly cause the motherboard to malfunction for some of it's functions?

From your 11 second video I noticed that your display port cable is plugged into your motherboard. It should be plugged into your RTX 2080. Remove the plastic dust inserts to reveal DisplayPort and HDMI ports.

I would re-install the video card. When dropping it into the slot, much like the Ram it requires very firm pressure, and there is normally an audible click of the retention clip closing in when it is fully seated. Also make sure the GPU has proper power connections from the Power supply, and that those cables aren't bad (swap them out if possible).
