(If this is in the wrong post section, please can someone move rather than locking the subject.)
I recently purchased a few new things for my computer,
i got a MSI Z87M-Gaming motherboard,
a Intel core i5 processor,
and a new case, CIT Vantage Gamers case.

I installed all components into the case, but some reason it doesn't connect to my monitor.
I've taken out the two ram sticks that i have, and placed them in each slot individually and tested to see if it was that. No luck.
I've tried running with my GPU inside, and i've tried running with my GPU not inside.
I've tried switching ports for my System Fan. (1 & 2)
But still there is no luck. I'm very confused to what is going wrong here. I know my RAM, hard drive, Disc Drive, and Powersupply are all fine, as i tested it in my old computer again, but something isn't quiet right. Please help, as this is very frustrating.

Hi,

Can you tell us more about your computer, see: >>Posting Guide<<
Sounds like you have Haswell Refresh i5 and current BIOS simply doesn't support it.

As expected 4590k.
You need standard Haswell chip in order to flash, else it won't work.

Okay i see, as you can probably tell i'm very inexperienced in this area. Would you recommend another CPU around the ?200 price? I've got my CPU ready for return, so i'll be able to afford a new one.
