Can't determine why PC won't turn on

Sorry if I posted this on the wrong subforum,
I am a super beginner with PC building and back in march I built my own rig using these parts I regrettably got off of Newegg:

MOTHERBOARD//
GIGABYTE X570 UD AMD Ryzen 3000 PCIe 4.0 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.2 AMD X570 ATX Motherboard
https://www.newegg.com/gigabyte-x570...82E16813145168

PROCESSOR//
AMD RYZEN 7 3700X 8-Core 3.6 GHz (4.4 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 65W 100-100000071BOX Desktop Processor
https://www.newegg.com/amd-ryzen-7-3...82E16819113567

CPU//
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model CMK16GX4M2B3200C16
https://www.newegg.com/corsair-16gb-...82E16820233859

GPU//
MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti DirectX 12 GTX 1660 TI VENTUS XS 6G OC 6GB 192-Bit GDDR6 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
https://www.newegg.com/msi-geforce-g...82E16814137392

1st POWER SUPPLY (replaced because I thought this was causing the pc to not turn on)//
CORSAIR CX Series CX550 550W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
https://www.newegg.com/corsair-cx-se...82E16817139202

Current POWER SUPPLY (The shape of the connectors for the pins don't have the same shape as shown on the mobo but it fits in anyway. I dunno if this is a big deal)//
Thermaltake Smart 600W 80 PLUS ATX12V 2.3 Power Supply
https://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-C.../dp/B014W3EMAO

I do not know what is causing this thing to not turn on but I have tried removing parts little by little and trying to power this thing on so I am not sure if it is anything but the motherboard at this point. Whether I plug this thing into a wall socket or a conductor it just won't turn on. I also tried taking out and re-inserting the silver circle thing on the motherboard.

The power cable (big one ATX) is foolproof. It won't go in if orientation is wrong. For the CPU cooler fan, both fan risers will work i know but to make sure use the one on top.

Now, the PWR Switch in the front panel header, i am not sure if it is plugged the right way. I know the label should be showing. Check it out. For that riser, i only use the power switch. Less messy.

EDIT: The power for the graphics card seems not aligned properly. Line them up before inserting. They will look like one piece.

My 2.5 years old delidded 7980xe @ 4600mhz all core with 49ns memorylatency (4000c16 twekaed) is faster than 3950x max overclocked on water in every scenario. Pretty good for a ancient cpu
In gaming it has no chance vs my new 10900k @ 5400mhz and 4600c16 tweaked memory. ~35ns memorylatency.

Thanks for checking! The plug that you showed, I tried it both ways top and bottom and it won't turn on, but I left it switched to show the letters like you mentioned. As far as the Fan Risers go, I'm sorry but I don't know what that is.... :[

Here is the manual. In page 4 you will see Fan 3. Just want to make sure. See page 16 for the pwr switch. You should see the label when plugged.

Also, are you sure you turned on the power for the PSU?

EDIT: Seeing other things wrong now. The GPU it seems is not properly installed. It should plug in straight just like the rams, then bolt it down. Keep those wires away from the fans.

jumper the damn header with a screw driver, see if it turns on... really simple

I just unscrewed it to take it out recently and see if it was part of the problem. Screwed in or not the compooper won't turn on. There's actually this cord from my power supply I have no clue where it goes but the manual says it's a Floppy Connector.
Also rdr09, I didn't notice a Fan3 on the manual or the motherboard, I'm squinting, I'm breathing slowly, I'm concentrating all my chakra to my eyes and I'm not noticing it.

i never at any point said to "unscrew" the board from the case... i said jump the header pins with a screw driver

Quick question, you installed the stand offs before mounting the motherboard right? You aren't screwing that straight to the case? If so, there is your problem.

My bad. It's on Page 12. Don't worry about the Floppy Connector.
