Hello, i recently bought the corsair c70 case and today i was moving the parts from my old case to this one. Everything looked alright in the case and i placed the parts in with ease. I then put the plug on my pc and pressed the power button, nothing. I opened up the case and all the of lights on my motherboard were green and my gpu had all green as well. I have been stuck on this problem for a matter of hours now. There is only one thing i think that could be causing the problem. Im not too sure what the exact places that the wire going from the power button and reset button that plugs into the motherboard. i have tried every possible combination of plugging the wires into the slots inluding the exact same places they were plugged into earlier.

Sorry if this is hard to understand. i have found it hard to word my problem :)

Well you start by reading the manual for the board,and there will be a diagram telling you EXACTLY what wire goes where, and the direction of the plug also matters on some, not all, but some.

The mob manual - the one that came with it or you can check the manufactures website for what goes were. If still no go, grab the power button off your old case and hook it up direct to the mob see if it starts. If it still will not turn on take the mob out of the case plug everything in per the manual and retry. If it works outside the case then your grounding out in the case. Make sure your screw post are were there suppose to be and your not touch any extra metal or wires in the case. If it won't boot outside the case, test the power supply. Most likely it's just the way you have it wired from the power button to the mob.

Yes, check your owners manual to get the front panel connectors plugged in correctly. If you're still having problems you may have missed something putting the build back together in the new case. You can go through this troubleshooting checklist to narrow down what's causing the problem.
