Specs: win 10 home, 3.9GHz / 16
Building a computer for my father-in-law, everythings brand new, got everything up and running, no boot/display. I have the 10 pin hd audio connector firmly plugged in and im not getting any beep codes or anything. All fans start, mobo lights up, add on video card fans spin, zero picture or mobo bios menu. even if i take video card out and all ram i still dont get any beep codes.

Update lol, well the ram i have is gskill ripjaws ddr4-3000, on the back sticker it says intel on it, does that mean its for intel cpus? the gskill website doesn't mention that particular ram as a compatible match for my mobo, but i see on reviews of that ram that ppl have used in amd, is it just the mobo that not compatible with the ram?

Tuf x470-plus mobo
cosair 750 watt p.s.
ryzen 5 3.9ghz processor
4 tb hdd
m.s.i. rx570 vid card
16 gb gskill ram

win 10 home (not installed yet)

With no ram installed and everything else working OK you should get a beep code. Since you don't I doubt if ram is the problem, although I didn't look into compatibility issues. These cpu suggestions:

(Click on 'accessories' and then 'see all cpu processors. It didn't give a direct link.)

don't show that it's compatible with a 3.9 ghz processor. Did you check into cpu compatibility before selecting that one?

Otherwise, disconnect all the drives and any external devices leaving just cpu/cooling fan, ram and video card. If it boots up then likely one of the disconnected items is at fault.

1st time builder? Did you bench test the hardware before installing it in the case? If not, you skipped a critical step.

"I have the 10 pin hd audio connector firmly plugged in and im not getting any beep codes or anything"

The BIOS beep codes come from a speaker connected to the front panel header. The manual calls it the "system warning speaker". The header is at the bottom edge of the board, next to the SATA connectors. It's the same header the power button, reset button, HDD activity LED, etc connect to.

Here's a couple of examples of the speaker:
