A great site to check compatibility is pcpartpicker.com
Enter the items in there, and copy and paste it here.

Cables wrongly connected = computer won't start. So what exactly are these "troubles with cables"? I see no compatibility problems with that build.

I don't see anything wrong with your build. Check if you connected all the parts to the motherboard properly and cable connected correctly. Also make sure that the RAM is seated correctly.

Take every non essential cable off motherboard, so leave only 8-pin and 24 pin + CPU cooler. Then try to start.

How did you try to start machine? You can try to short circuit motherboard power pins with screwdriver (be careful!) instead using case power button.

If you are careful enough, you can try that screwdriver trick. Case power button may be broken.

"over the edge"? Do you mean not fitting to the proper screen resolution - image shifted to the left, right, top, or bottom? If that's the case there is usually an option in the on-screen display (accessed by pressing a button on the monitor, typically labeled "menu") that might be able to correct it. Or do you mean the panel (part of the screen that shows the image) is actually loose in the monitor frame? Or something else entirely?

Just use imgur or another image sharing site.
Basically, from what you describe, the resolution is off. Try:
1. Right click on the desktop
2. Select the "Display Options" or "Screen Resolution" (something of that sort) option on the right click menu.
3. Try selecting different on the "resolution" dropdown until you find the one that fits. Also check that you have the correct drivers installed.
(sorry I don't have pics, no access to a windows box at the moment).
