Asus P5Q Won't post properly after case swap

Hey guys, I'm giving my old parts to my sister so I swapped the components on my case over to her case directly (except for graphics card).

However, once I have everything plugged in, the computer powers but the fans stay at 100% speed and nothing shows up.

The monitor's power button flashes (as if on standby) and there's nothing I could do.

I've tried:
- Removing CMOS battery and plugging it back in
- Cmos clear via Jumper
- Taking out the whole mobo to make sure nothing is short circuiting the mobo
- Double checked connections between peripherals and mobo
- Removed the old IDE HDD that my sister has leaving only her SATA back up drive
- Removed memory modules and plugged them back in 1 by 1

I'm out of ideas guys. This mobo was 100% working when I plugged it out of my case. It's impossible that it would die all of a sudden. Please help!

Her specs:
- E8400 (my CPU)
- Asus P5Q (my Mobo)
- Nvidia 8800GT 512MB
- 2x2GB DDR2 1066 Ram (my ram)
- Corsair TX750 750W PSU

Make sure you used risers! shorting the board out will cause it to not post.
