    Either really long cables or one cable with a dock at your desk.

    When the PC is sitting directly on carpet, yes. But otherwise you won't get more dust.

    CMOS wouldn't do much here.
    The motherboard has post codes at the bottom. Those numbers that light up during the boot sequence, probably in red. What are they displaying?
    Then again, what exactly do you mean by "it didn't boot"? Nothing turned on at all? Screen went black? Are fans spinning?

    Have you waited long enough?
    I don't know how it is with ryzen 2 and x470 boards but i do know the first boot of my 2 r5 1600 builds took multiple minutes, like 5-10 minutes.
    Insanely long. But i waited and eventually it was all fine.

    Your motherboard has a little display at the bottom right. Look at what error code it gives you.
     
    Other things you can try:
    Make sure all power cables are connected.
    One for the CPU (plugs into the motherboard, near the CPU).
    One for the motherboard (the big 24-pin one).
    One or more for the graphics card.
     
    Make sure the display cable is plugged into your graphics card, not the motherboard.
     
    You can always try booting the computer up with just 1 stick of RAM.

    On the monitor or on the POST screen?

    That's not what I'm looking for:)
    On the motherboard, at the very bottom there is a digital display that shows 2 digits/letters. What do they say?
    Those are POST codes.

    Clearing CMOS simply erases all the settings that you tweaked in BIOS (if).
     
    But yeah, once you're home, write down every error code you see and post them here and wait for someone to respond. Or you can also check what every code means in the motherboard manual.

    It will still boot properly (if everything else is as it should). You do not need to download a new BIOS.
    Resetting the CMOS just resets all the settings.

    Ryzen can take up to 15 minutes on the first boot.  Stupidly annoying?  Yup.

    Looks like a solid build that will do what you want it too very well. However a CD reader for $89 is quite un-needed unless you have a library of old games and movies you need to watch off a disk. Im a "power user" of PCs and have been for like 4-5 years. I have not ONCE needed to use a physical disc, ever. And If I needed to do something with it, I can do it with a USB or CD player emulator (free).
