First off this is my first attempt at new build..
Just brought a new case (aerocool x predator) and PSU (AX 650 corsair) connected it up to my motherboard (Cleveland-GL8) which ould had taken note im having to recycle from my older HP case (
) but I think im messing the power sw cable up and H.D.D LED and -p LED +p LED ...
Iv tryed to look for manuals but I cant find any..
Ive supplied some pictures, the first is the power sw cable position when it spins fans for half a second and lights on case come on but all goes straight off the second is with nothing plugged in.
Please help lol, sat here with newCase, PSU, GPU and RAM but can't get it to work...
