So, today was the day I finally swapped my PC cases. To anyone that was following up on my posts, the results are below!

After the build, it seems as if my wireless isn't working. At first when I booted, my wifi came up and I was connected, but really terribly. Like 2 out of 6 bars were showing. At this point, I've done nothing from then at all but restarted my PC, but there isn't any networks showing. I turned on my phone teathering to see if it was the distance, but nope, nothing at all showing. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks a ton!

EDIT: Here is a picture of my device manager, because I'm sure someone will ask.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS and current drivers for your wireless card.

Make sure that you haven't disabled to wifi. This would cause you to see no networks as well.

Try removing the wireless card, starting your computer up without it, then shut your computer down and re-install it. Before you do this, make sure EVERYTHING is unplugged from the wall and make sure that you are grounded. If you don't have a grounding wrist strap, get one. They are cheap and can save you from frying your motherboard or other parts due to static. I've actually ruined a motherboard like this. If you don't have one, for right now just touch a part of your case that is metal before you touch anything inside. This will discharge any static you have built up on you. Below are several grounding straps from Amazon. They're a bit cumbersome, but they will save you from destroying your computer.

Turned out I didn't have the antennas connected properly to the wireless module. I fixed it. Thanks for trying to help!

Great! Make sure to mark this thread as "Solution Solved" so that others can learn from it in the future. So many people on here get the solution to their problem but never mark it as "Solved". When people scan through the threads looking for an answer they only see that the thread never was solved. They don't take the time to go through each post, but they shouldn't have to. Marking it as "Solved" helps the community tremendously. :)
