Huh a nice ProArt build, but ain't a ProArt case isn't it ? 🙂

The board has a debug LED but I don't see it, what does it show ?

Also try with only 1 RAM stick

First of all, check each individual RAM stick. See if it boots that way. Clear cmos. 

Have you tried turning it off and on again? Maybe Restart it?

How long are you waiting when turning it on? DDR5 initial RAM training can take upwards of 5 minutes. It'll sit on a black screen potentially for that long. Also, making sure you're not accidentally plugged into the RESET header on the motherboard and into the PWR button header properly.

Oh I didn’t know that that might be an issue but the power button should be right

Did you check the power button wiring? So nothing happens when you try to power it on, like no fans spinning etc?

Yeah but the power button I think works because when I press it ram starts to glow.Idk if u can see on the photo but power button is connected to 3 and 4 pin from the right

That should be okay. Can you disconnect it ant try to short those 2 pins with something metal like a screwdriver or sth?
Also, if that doesn't work, take out the MB from the case and try to power it on, maybe it's shorted somewhere with the case

Pull it out, use 1 stick of ram, if u have integrated gpu plug the cable from monitor straight into the MB and disconnect discrete gpu. You can take the AIO as well (maybe mounting pressure can be the problem) and m.2 as well.

 

Just  do the bios reset, leave cpu inside, one stick of ram and hook 1fan just to see when it starts and try to turn it on that way.

Leaving cpu without cooler for some short time won't hurt it. If it powers on and boots, turn it off, put it in the case and hook AIO first and try to boot it. Then add 1 component at the time an try to turn it on every time u add new component

It sounds like a faulty MB to me. 
BTW, do u have multimeter by any chance? If you do, check the voltage of the BIOS battery. Some Asus boards won't power on if the bios battery voltage is too low.

Newly bought MB maybe it’s bios update?

New MBs can sometimes be faulty. But as far as I'm aware you can't do bios update if you can't make the MB to turn on. If that's possible then by all means try to update it.
What about the multimeter and bios battery? Do you have multimeter to check the voltage or a spare new or battery from another PC that you can use for testing?

It's worth trying and it's inexpensive. Also, maybe you have some device in your home that uses cr2032 battery, check around. I know some scales, key fobs use it, maybe some rgb remote...

Sometimes just one part of the MB dies, it doesn't mean it's completely dead. Maybe some capacitor for something is blown, or some traces for example that give power to the m.2 slot are not good but okay for everything else... Without someome looking at it with experience with fixing electronic components it's impossible to point out what exactly is the problem.

One more question. Have you checket CPU socket? Can you verify that all pins are fine? Not broken or bent?
If they are okay then there is probably something else wrong with the motherboard. There is also a slight chance that PSU is not good, but I bet on MB.
