I just bought a barebone Cubi N 8GL-002BEU-BN5000XX without RAM, disk, or OS. 

[list type=decimal]
[*]I have installed Crucial DDR4 PC2400 8GB CL17 SO-DIMM RAM and a Corsair SSD Force MP510 960GB M.2 NVMe harddisk. 
[*]I used this tool from Microsoft to create a bootable USB drive. (microsoft.com/en-in/software-download/windows10)
[*]I connected the MSI Cubi to my screen with a HDMI cable and a USB keyboard + mouse.  
[/list]

When I turn on the pc nothing happens on the screen and after a couple of seconds the screen times out and goes to sleep. 

How do I make it boot from the USB disk containing the Windows installation files? 

I have tried to acces BIOS by pressing F11 when turning the device on - without any luck. 
I have tried to remove the internal SSD disk trying to force it to boot from usb - without any luck. 
I have tried to connect another bootable USB disk created with this tool http://rufus.ie/en_IE.html - without any luck. 

What am I doing wrong?

I think his issue that computer unable to boot, (he got nothing on the screen)
and not that he can't install OS.

I have the same issue as the OP

The monitor does not pick up anything from the Cubi N.

I have installed

HyperX Impact DDR4 HX424S14IB2/8 Memory 2400 MHz CL14 SODIMM 8 GB
256GB Samsung 950 Pro M.2 2280 PCIe 3.0 x4 32Gb/ V-NAND MLC Toggle (MZ-V5P256BW)

Are these parts compatible? Is there a hardware compatibility list?

Any insights are welcome.
