Hi. I put together this machine https://pcpartpicker.com/user/svvay/saved/tRrJxr and for some reason the CM Stormtrooper case won't turn on. Once everything is connected the motherboard turns on but the case doesn't respond. Please help.

So the motherboard comes on and your machine boots up correctly? Or, does the light on the motherboard just come on? Makes sure your CPU fan, CPU power, RAM, GPU, Motherboard Power, and front case header cables are all connected correctly.

You can use a screwdriver to short the power "+" and "-" pins in the (usually) bottom right corner of the motherboard. This should start the PC. If it does start, ensure the front case header cables are installed correctly.

Just the light on the motherboard comes on.

Are all of the components that I stated plugged in?

Your build has two compatibility issues flagged:

Some Intel X99 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Broadwell-E CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions. The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled.

I would start with those.

This wouldn't cause the issue.

This may, depending on the BIOS version.
