New build doesn't respond </3

So yesterday I built a new system for a friend. After everything was done, I plugged it in and nothing. The mobo has LED's which they didn't turn on, neither the case/cooler fans.

I tried the paperclip thingy on the PSU to verify it's functioning and indeed it turned on. So it's kinda obvious to me what is the issue, I just want to get some other opinions before I go through the time consuming process of taking apart the pc again to RMA the motherboard. 
Am I missing something? The 24-pin and 8-pin are connected to the mobo, so even wtih that alone it should power up, right?

 

Specs:

CPU: i5 8400
GPU: GTX 1070
MOTHERBOARD: Z370 MSI GAMING PLUS
RAM: 8GB CRUCIAL DDR4 2400MHZ

PSU: THERMALTAKE SMART SE 630W 80+

CASE: PHANTEKS P400

Remove the GPU, try to boot just with the iGPU and single stick of RAM (try in multiple slots)

Turn on the PSU power switch.xD

 

  That sounds too scary for me, I might take it to a tech guy to do that.

Please ensure, that you have plugged the panel connectors correct.

 

You could also try to bridge the power pins from the panel connectors.

I took it apart now, testing is over for me, I'm just gonna send it back to the seller. I did try with no panel connectors plugged but nothing happened, the LED's on the board should light even so.
