I just moved all my stuff from an old case to a new one (cosmos 2) and when I press the power button, the houses lights flicker (they do that whenever something draws a lot of power, like electric toilet flushing, turning my PC on) but nothing else happens. Motherboard lights are on BTW, the power and reset ones.
mobo: asus p6t deluxe
psu: cooler master silent pro 1200w
cpu: i7 920 stock clock
cpu fan/heatsink: nh d14
gpu: SLI 580 and I tried booting with both and with only one in
ram: 3 4gb sticks @ 1600MHz, tried booting with 3 and 1 in all slots
I used no new parts besides the NH D14 instead of a stock cooler.
did all of that still no go, only thing I'm not sure about is this.
I have a 4+4 pin connector that came with my PSU, used it as 4+4 plugged into the mobo which is an 8 pin slot, only thing is I can barely reach in to unplug/plug it in since the NH D14 heatsink blocks it, so I want to know if it could be the problem or not.
EDIT: forgot to mention all of this stuff was working a few hours ago before I took it apart
edit 2: just tried with no ram or gpu and no beeps, fan spun for 1/10 of a second
edit 3: just unplugged the 4 + 4 pin, same thing happens so I'm thinking the PSU even though it was working a few hours ago. Same thing happens with just one 4 pin.
EDIT 4: IT WORKS unscrewed, shorts when screwed in.
Use the template that came with the case to locate the correct positions of the stand-offs. The case has several threaded holes for different configurations of mounting depending on different motherboards.
Do not use more stand-offs than the motherboard will accommodate.
