Just finished a build, plugged it in, power supply is receiving proper voltage but no response from any components.Checked 24 pin connector with a plug in power connector checker. The -5volt light failed to come on while the others lite up. Interestingly the fans worked with the checker plugged into the 24 pin connector and the 8 pin connected to the motherboard. Unplugged the 24 pin from checker, connected back to motherboard and once again no response from computer.
Any ideas---is 750 power supply not overdrawn.
What 750W power supply do you have? What are the other specs of the system? Do you have another power supply that you can use in the system to check and make sure its not the motherboard? Have you check to make sure its not the power button on the case thats causing issues? What the tester does it is shorts the green wire on the 24 pin to a black wire just like what the power button causes so when you had the fans plugged into the power supply and the power supply hooked up to the tester, the power supply was ON, so i find it more likely its a motherboard issue.
Sorry for the lack of info. New to all of this.

Verifed front panel connections
Still not running
I am not sure what QVL means or what pins I need to jump.
jump the pins where the power switch connects to the motherboard to rule out a faulty power switch. And make sure the power switch is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard. Also, Disconnect all components except for mainboard and try to power on. If it responds then one of the components is taking down the power. Add a component one at a time to find the faulty part. basic fault finding...
