New case, pc won't start

I ordered an antec 300 off of amazon and when i transfered everything into the new case, my pc wouldn't boot. The PC loses power and shuts off as soon as i let go of the power button on the case. I've checked the standoffs to make sure there were no extras and all of the necessary ones were installed. also, when I hold the power button to see if the PC will boot by doing so, there is no video routed to the monitor.

Specs:
Case: Antec 300
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965
Mobo: MSI 970A-G46 AM3+
PSU: Thermaltake TR-2 600W

More about case start
  1. Have you correctly installed the front panel connectors, if it was working perfectly fine before and you have checked the standoffs and have not damaged anything during the transition then I believe your problem belongs to the front panel connector. The manual shows you you can install it in only one way and if installed in another you cannot start the computer.
  2. Carefully short the poweron pins on the motherboard, if it fires up, case panel connector faulty, RMA.

    I'm kinda new to this stuff so what do you mean by saying he front panel connector can be installed in more than one way?

    Actually I meant the front panel connectors can only be installed in one way only. If not done correctly it will not turn on.

    Here is a picture of the most standard of front panel connectors, it might apply to you:
