I just finished piecing together my first custom built computer and I'm having some problems booting it up now.
I believe the problem is the power supply (Fusion 550) in my case (Arctic Cooling Silentium T1). The switch on the front of the computer is apparently connected to a small black and red wire ending up in a connector with 2 very small holes. I've been searching through all the documentation I could find and haven't come across anything on this. As of now, nothing happens when I press the switch on the front, and I can't figure out another way to turn on the PSU normally.
I've succeeded in starting up only by pressing the MemOK! switch on my motherboard (ASUS P7P55D PRO) which starts a memory tuning sequence, but first of all, nothing really happened from there, and secondly it's not really practical to use a pencil to poke my motherboard any time I want to turn on my PC.
Any input on this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
EDIT: I realized that I had forgot to plug in the 8-pin power supply for the motherboard. The computer can actually start now, but the front power switch still doesn't work. Again I suppose it's just a matter of me not knowing where that red black wire goes... ^^
