Computer keeps turning on and then off and repeats?

First time building a new computer.. When I turn it on the motherboard sound section turns which to me indicates the motherboard is working. The fans spin and after 30 seconds or less it turns off.. Nothing is displayed on the screen connect via VGA. Helps. Does not cover motherboard that lights up which I assume that means the motherboard is working. The EVGA power supply came with self detector and was spinning and turned on so I assume the PSU is good. Not sure what else to do. I have tried: Remove RAM, checked PSU to mobo connections. I will try plugging it in a different area of the house. I think it was caused by: Not sure saw on Google that maybe it is a thermal paste problem but seems unlikely to me but will try on last resort.
