First build. I'm unable to get the PC to power up. I did the paper clip test and confirmed that the PSU is working.
From the PSU, I have both the 24 pin power connector and the ATX 12V power connector plugged into the motherboard. I also have a SATA cable from the PSU to the SSD and from the SSD to the MoBo
I think the problem could be with one of the NZXT connections. From the NZXT 500 case, I have 4 front panel connectors - POWER SW, HDD LED, -P LED, +P LED. There are 9 pins on the bottom-right of the MoBo. 4 on top and 5 below.
I have +P LED in the top left with -P LED one slot to the right.
POWER SW is in the 2 pins to the right of +P LED -P LED
Bottom row: HDD LED is in the 2 pins below +P and -P The 2 pins below POWER SW are empty as the manual indicates this is for RESET And the 9th pin, in the bottom right is empty
I also have the HDD Audio and the USB 3.0 plugged into the correct spots on the MoBo.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance for the help.
