PC won't boot

Hey all. So about 4 months ago I installed a new motherboard and ram. I've had no problems with them until last night the PC suddenly froze and then shut off and now when I try to boot GPU will light up and LEDs inside the case but display will show no signal and mouse/keyboard will not power up. Also the EZ debug is lighting up red for the CPU.

Here's what I've tried I've reseated the ram and CPU to no prevail tried the ram in different slots still no prevail. Checked the CPU for any bent pins looked good to me. Tried to reset the cmos. I didn't have a jumper but I heard a screwdriver would work too so I used that still nothing. I've also tried holding down the power button after unplugging the power cord and nothing.

I'm completely lost at this point I have no idea what else to try everything should be working fine as the MOBO and ram are relatively brand new.

On a side note I'm not getting any beeps from the MOBO when starting the PC but all LEDs on the mobo work perfectly, same with fans.

Any solutions and help would be greatly appreciated.

Nvida Titan xp
Intel I7 8700k
Corsair vengeance 16gb LPX ddr4 3100
Thermaltake smart 750w 80plus bronze
Z370 gaming pro carbon MOBO

Yesterday I did get a slew of didn't post results so if you saw those, all I can write the forum seems fine today.

Psu + mobo + cpu/hsf + one stick of ram.
NOTHING else connected or plugged in.
Use a small metal object to short the power on pins on the mobo for one sec.

Does it power up and pass post?
