The did you use the Stand off screws which go under the mother board to separate the case from touching the mother board? then screw in the regular screws to secure the mother board? i was a noob and this happened to me, i didn't put the stand off screws under the board. This might help you because if you don't do that, it will short circuit your power connection to the board.
