Dumb Question: How do I startup my computer? (From the Motherboard)

Hello,

I have this motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128512

I have my entire computer setup, but my case is yet to be in!

Anyways, I have setup everything on my table and have everything secured: CPU & CPU Cooler, two 6870's, etc. Everything seems well!

One problem....HOW DO I STARTUP THIS THING?

Now, I've read that there are two prongs on the MOBO which I short in order to boot the computer. But, I'm unable to find these two prongs. Anywhere. I've been searching for over an hour!

Thank you for your help. Oh, and sorry for asking such stupid questions. I know, I know. But I've googled this forever and came up with nothing!

    Read the manual .... its the two you connect the PWR SW to.....usually in lower right hand corner when mounted in the case.
  2. use a screw driver as a "bridge"/conductor to connect the two prongs
  3. page 28 of user manual use momentary switch
