I've just eliminated every connection possibility with my motherboard, and now I'm down to one of two reasons why pressing the power button on my new build is meaningless:
  • The SYSTEM HEADER leads (Power Switch, etc.) that came with my ANTEC 200 case are bad; or
  • The brand new COOLER MASTER SILENT-PRO 600 is D.O.A. and needs to be returned.
    Thoughts? Thanks guys.

    Check that you have both leads from the psu plugged in to the motherboard .


    You can check the front panel connectors by disconnecting them from the motherboard . Then try starting the pc with the tip of a screwdriver across the two pins that should connect to the front panel power switch . Just touch it briefly and remove .
    If the pc boots you know the power switch is the problem
