Gday miguel1999, welcome.

The surest way to troubleshoot your issue, is to start with a bare bones build and test.

My questions may seem unnecessary and instructions simplistic, but bear with me so we cover all possibilities.

 

Do not run the computer again as with the CPU fan not working, it is possible to damage it.

 

If your case came with a rear I/O shield installed? did you remove it and install the one that came in the MB box?

Did the stand offs on the case MB plate match exactly the number of corresponding holes in the MB?   no extra ones left behind?

 

What CPU?

What Cooler?

What RAM.

What GPU? 

What storage device, (drives)?

 

Please answer all the question and post beck your replies.

Thanks for the info.

You did not answer my first questions, and they are still important.

"If your case came with a rear I/O shield installed? did you remove it and install the one that came in the MB box?

Did the stand offs on the case MB plate match exactly the number of corresponding holes in the MB?   no extra ones left behind?"

 

Sorry to say, you have a compatibility issue between the Motherboard and CPU.

Your MB has a Intel® H270 Chipset and supports 7th/6th Generation  CPUs.

Read here at the top overview, > https://www.asus.com...specifications/

If you want to keep the CPU, you will need a different MB and also ensure the RAM compatibility. 

You currently have the (i7 8700k, 8th generation) The chipset for that CPU are here > https://ark.intel.com/products/126684/Intel-Core-i7-8700K-Processor-12M-Cache-up-to-4-70-GHz-  

On that page, click the 'find compatible motherboards'  and goes to this page, > http://processormatch.intel.com/MotherBoards/CompatibleBoards?componentName=i7-8700K 

Then choose an Asus MB.

 

If you want to keep the MB, you will need a different CPU.

Asus CPU support list here, > https://www.asus.com...G/HelpDesk_CPU/

The top performing CPU for the H270 chipset is the i7-7700K (4.2GHz, found here, > https://ark.intel.co...up-to-4-50-GHz-

 

Questions? ​ We can discuss your options further.
