So I built a desktop and after hooking everything up properly to my knowledge I pushed the power button and it turns on for a few seconds and the fans power up then it turns off for a few seconds and repeats this cycle until I turn the PSU off. Help?

Here are the specs:

-Intel Core i7-6700K Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I76700K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530

-Gigabyte H170 Gaming 3 LGA 1151 motherboard (supports DDR4)

-EVGA Supernova 650 G2 Gold power supply

-SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E250B/AM

-G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Intel Z170 Platform / Intel X99 Platform Desktop Memory Model F4-2133C15D-8GVR

You didn't bend CPU socket pins?

New builds are a major part of my service.  First, assemble everything outside the case.  Only the bare essentials to start.  MOBO, one memory card, keyboard and video card if not on MOBO.  Get that to start first, then add a CD/DVD drive to boot from and finally a hard drive.  The starting and the stopping of the fans is an indication of a shorted power supply and the main cause in new builds is a miss placed standoff shorting things out, thus the assembly outside the case.  The MOBO manual should identify the proper mounting points and those that require grounding.

I took everything apart and put it all back together and put the wires a different way and it works now, thanks for the replies!

Good deal when i teach how to build, one of the most essential parts of that is learning that when something is wrong, simply go back over it and do a quick rebuild. Because when you do that you reseat your compemenets, and you also again reattach all the PSU/CASE wiring. In many cases that fixes it. Happy computing!
