Default [Q] Everyone with computer knowledge help

I have recently built myself a new gaming computer and I installed Windows 8.1 on it. Today, I wanted to dual boot Ubuntu over Windows. So, the regular, downloaded Ubuntu, got a USB and made it bootable with the "universal usb installer" which i downloaded from some site pendrivelinux. I disabled UEFI Secure boot and fast-boot but it still won't show the boot menu to choose the OS. Anyone help here?

Specs:

Intel Core i7-4770k not overclocked
8 GB DDR3 CORSAIR VENGEANCE 2x4GB 1600MHZ
SAPPHIRE DUAL-X R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 OC
MSi Z87-GD65 GAMING MOTHERBOARD
CORSAIR AX860W POWER SUPPLY

I think it should run all OS really smooth, but I really don't know how to fix this.

when I re-booted it did not give me the option to select which OS I wanted to use it just loads windows.

Go to UEFI settings once again... find UEFI Boot options there... you'll see Windows Boot Loader and Linux Boot Loader.... change the order to put Linux Boot Loader on the top. It should solve the issue.
