After coquering the heatsink for the cpu, i got everything up and running cool. Then after some downloading of games i decided to try and hop in vent. In doing so, I also started to plug in my head set on the front audio ports that my case has. Right when i pressed the microphone all the way in, my rig shut down completely and upon pressing the power button nothing came back up. All i see is my mobo light on, and my power supply light on, nothing else. I tried checking my power button connections to the board, and replugging back in, and to no avail.... what could be wrong now? I really hope its nothing serious. I dont understand why it would just randomly shut down when i plugged my headset in the front ports and not come back... Like i said, temps were perfect. 30C and below.
Any ideas? Im getting very frustrated at this point.

Check the connections to your headphone sockets
They are connected to the wrong adaptor on your mobo
Hope nothing is shortened, and mobo is not booting to prevent any damage
Try to install any sound card and connect headphone to it and see
I'm quit sure everything will be OK
Motherboard deaths are always different. alot of the times they just sit there silently or the fans spin up and nothing else. It can beep if there is a simple error, but if it's busted then it really can't.
well. good news. i removed it from the case and powered it on with minimal stuff and it worked! so i think my case is the issue. Do you guys have any suggestions on cases for alot of room to fit a 850 W power supply?
