First time building pc and it wont turn on

When i try to turn on the pc absolutely nothing happens, i have tried using a screwdriver between the power pins and changed power supply but nothing happens. When the power supply switch is on my keyboard lights up, i dont know if that helps though. Specs: Gigabyte B450 DS3H motherboard, EVGA 500W psu, AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor, Corsair vengeance lpx 16gb (2×8gb) ram, Corsair 200r case, Gigabyte rx 460 graphics card (taken from old pc).

I have checked all the wires multiple times and read all the documentation, i just dont get it.

I suspect two things, either a faulty CPU, you can try re-seating it (take it out for about 10 seconds) Or the motherboard is short circuiting somewhere. Check your capacitors too if there are any swollen ones. Unplug any USB connections (you probably already tried that too I guess)
