the problem is that if i plug the psu into the motherboard nothing happens. i didnt put it in the case yet for this exact reason since it would a be pain to get back out. i didnt fry the board since i put it directly on the box that it came in and grounded my self before handling it. i did the old paper clip trick and the psu went on, no problem. i double checked everything to make sure it was in right and everything was.
