I got a new computer case today and switched everything over to it, and when I tried to power it on, the power LED flashes and does nothing. I tried resetting the CMOS and it still wouldn't power on. I thought it might be the power supply, so I got my backup and plugged it into the mobo and the gpu and it powered on. I then put the backup PSU into the case and connected everything to have it do the same thing as the last time. Thinking it was the case being the problem, I moved everything back to my old case, powered it on, and the same thing happened. I'm not sure if the motherboard or the processor has something wrong with it from the switch, but the power supplies are fine. I'm using one now in my old PC with no problems. A friend told me that it's possible that my CPU was short circuited from the case being faulty, but I want to make sure that's the problem before I go to intel for a new one. Any suggestions?

Mobo: Asus P8Z77-V LE ATX LGA1155
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770
PSU: Corsair CX600
Old Case: CM Storm Enforcer
New Case: Thermaltake Element G
