Computer powers up, won't boot

CPU: i7-5930K 3.5 ghz x6
GPU: EVGA gtx 980ti sc
M/B: MSI X99A
RAM: 4x4gb 3000mhz ddr4
PSU: Corsair HX1000i
Computer powers on, the cpu fans are working but the case fans aren't, the gpu fans spin less than a rotation and stop for 5-10 secs, the gpu led is on, the wireless network card led is lit, the dvd drive opens and reads the disk, the power button lights up, the power and reset button lights up on the motherboard as well as a code 00 "not used" according to the motherboard manual. I hear a constant sound, seems like its coming from the motherboard. I tried to reseat the ram and put it in the slots recommended in the user guide, and made sure all of the components were connected properly to the power supply, and tried 2 monitors and a t.v. Im pretty fustrated, any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!!!

What I usually do, is start the computer with the minimum required components only (HD, CPU, GPU, 1 stick of ram) and run tests each time. If your board has integrated graphics, try those as well. Then gradually add components until you reproduce the problem.

To be, I think it would either be bad RAM or a MB issue.

My bet is on mobo.
Dunno why but the only components that died on me, was always motherboards.
My way of finding was more or less the same as IMod one. Maybe little more complicated becos i always had second puter or parts that i can put in.

And that's the only way mate , strip that bitchy thing.

What do you mean buy a Constant Sound Coming from the Motherboard ? Like a beep or a high Pitch wine ? I had a few motherboards die on me. Most of the time a chip on the board blows or it it gives a error code. Can you see if any of the chips on the board are getting hot? My last board a chip near the ram cards would get extremely hot very fast. I could smell it. Not sure what happen to it. Just for giggles you have a spare power supply to try out? Or ram cards?

I though as much. It's almost always the culprit.

That's good, glad you figured it out . On that note. My corsair ax 1200 failed on me two weeks ago. I notice that the computer was randomly restarting and was slow at booting up. After doing my monthly blowing dust out of the case and gpu fans and radiator fins ect. Plugged it in and turned the computer on. I heard a loud popping sound after 30 seconds . Like fire cracker going off. I look and can see sparks flying out of the psu case. I about shit my pants lol. Funny think is the computer didn't care, it was still running. I quickly hit the kill switch on the pus. I pulled it out and examined it . I could smell hot electronics coming from the psu but the components that I could see through the fan looked fine. So I jumped the number 4 and 6 pins on the 24 pin motherboard connector and only had a few fans and the water pump powered. After about a minute of it running I heard a crackling sound coming from the psu. So my at the time of buying the psu top of the line power supply failed in only 4 years. I was a little disappointed . I was surprised after leaving a support ticket on cosair site, they answered me in 5 mins. They sent me a ax1200i as a replacement. I was also A little annoyed after receiving my psu on a Monday . They had it for about a week then email me saying my replacement psu was out of stock. Just my luck lol. I was surprised to see the replacement psu was a brand new one. Not a reman. I thought they would just repair my old one. I'm guessing it wasn't repair able. Hopefully the replacement psu last longer then 4 years. I'm also shocked but grateful that none of my computer parts were not damaged.
