So I'm building my new rig with the following specs:

Antec 1200 Case
i5 2500k
Asus P8P67 Pro
8 GB G.Skill RAM
GTX 570

I'm taking my hard drive and power supply from my old system and putting it into my new system. I finished up last night, and was getting a green light on the motherboard but the On button did nothing. So I took a look at the manual again and decided my Power Switch plug was in wrong. I rotated and that did the trick. It would do a double boot, but everything turned. However, I had no visuals. It was late so I had to go to bed and slept on it. I decided my problem was I only had one power supply cable plugged into the motherboard, the 24 pin. So when I got home today I plugged in the four pin on the opposite side, which I believe powers the CPU. Now my problem is the motherboard light is glowing green, but the power button does nothing. Any ideas?

What power supply are you using? Still getting no visual at all?

I'm using a Coolmaster 650 watt PSU. Not only do I not get a visual now, but the fans, GPU, and HDD aren't turning on anymore. I combined the two four pins into an eight pin, and figured that would solve the visual issue. But now all I'm getting is a green light on the motherboard that lights up when I hit the switch on the power supply. When I press the power button nothing happens. I've triple checked that the Q Connectors are in the correct spot, and I've bridged the gap between the two power connections to test if it was the cable. Nothing happened.

Well I hope you know that there is recall on all SB processors and chipset motherboards. You should be returning right about now.
