Hi, i just got a new cooler master 690 II advanced, installed everything like it was in my old case. But doesn't seem to wanna turn on, one of the LEDs is lit up on the front.

make sure you have installed the correct headers that go to the power button, if they are all correct, make sure there is nothing shorting it out like a screw behind the mobo.

i checked them and there in the right place, and nothing i could see behind the mobo. the only led to light up is the lightning looking one :S. anymore ideas

Is everything earthed fully? And also try it with the case fully on, if you get lots of EMI (electromagnetic interference) it can be preventing it from booting by inducing currents in wires/tracks that shouldn't be...

Hi my specs are:

Corsair Gaming Series GS700
Foxconn H67MP-V mobo

could the psu some how of broken or something?

Getting any Beeps / lights on?

My guess is power switch is not plugged up right. The switch on the Psu got hit somehow. Or something got fried. If fried I would still think you could get a beep or something though.

I know some of the small connectors have + and - charges and they have to be in the right place...

Have you breadboarded the system yet? Gone thru the other boot-no-video thread and checked everything in it? You have to do some troubleshooting now to figure out why your PC isn't booting properly...based on your indications, the links I provided are the best place to start that troubleshooting.

The Corsair Gaming Series PSUs are good quality and I wouldn't initially suspect it of being your issue. Could it be? Yes, but not likely. You're a lot more likely to find another issue by going thru the above troubleshooting steps...

I've done the paper clip test for the psu and it works fine, checked the boot-no-video thread and checked a few things from it but still nothing.

gonna try the breadboarding tomorrow getting late now.

just a quick thought could it be something wrong with the cases power wire

Yes, but it's highly unlikely on a new case. I'm betting that you've somehow shorted the mobo.

hmm so does this mean i installed the standoffs wrong? and is a shorted mobo a bad thing?

It's possible that you installed the standoffs wrong....that's the reason that I mentioned it. It's bad in that it will prevent your PC from booting. It shouldn't destroy any of your components.
