Yes both are plugged in but didnt notice any led's. I didnt attempt to power it since the power wasn't labled on the motherboard.

You won't know for sure until you try. Take a look in your manual to find the pins that control the power button. Just tapping them with a screwdriver should power the board up when connected to power. If nothing happens, it's probably DOA.

So I tried to test my X470 motherboard with a CX500m power supply to see if it was working which when I plugged everything in I didnt see any LED's on so I'm not sure if it's going to work or not. I'm not getting my newer CX650m till Tuesday along with the case that's why I was a little curious to if it would work or not. So is my motherboard not going to work when I set it up?

So did you plug in a CPU and RAM and actually turn the board on? (if it's not in a case, use a screwdriver)

Makes sense if you don't have a GPU installed combined with a Ryzen non-G processor. Do you have a semi-modern graphics card to test with?

I'm not sure I'm following you here. Do you have the 1070 installed on the X470 or not? Because if not, and you're not running a 200GE, 2200G or 2400G CPU, it will always try to find onboard graphics, which it can't, and won't POST as a result. So far, it seems the board is okay, though.

Ah, check. To know for sure the board is good, put in a graphics card and connect a monitor. It should POST, judging from what you've been describing thus far :)
