Power turning on and off in my new build

This is my first time building a PC and after assembling it, I turned it on and the CPU, GPU and one case fan turns on for about 10-15 seconds until they power off again for 3 seconds and then the cycle repeats.  

These are the steps I've taken to troubleshoot:

-tried re plugging it in to power

-changing the outlet

-took it out to see if the PSU fan was running (it was)

I tried googling the issue but couldn't find any other problems matching mine.

The issue was a faulty motherboard

Start by removing rams and only plugging one in.

Gotta give us your specs man. This sounds like typical behavior of a Gigabyte motherboard when there's an issue with the RAM.

I made his specs list and assisted him with the building process online. He has a Asrock mobo.

The RAM and HDD were part of an old prebuilt. They worked fine, I just wanted faster storage and RAM

Do you know if the motherboard came Ryzen 3000 ready (long orange sticker on the box?)

I assume so at this point but want to make sure the BIOS is up-to-date.

Try pulling the CMOS battery for about 60 seconds, put it back in, and try to boot up. I typically haven't needed to do this on a new board, but it's happened before.
