I tried the internal and external power buttons. here are the specs for my system. Brand new build and it is my first build as well. I was hoping it would go easy. as far I can see I plugged the PSU into each part, The only issue I had was the CPU, I have an 8 pin\4 pin split cable and the 8 pin cable both are hardwired and non-removable from the PSU. This seems like it would indicate both must be used, the user manual also directs you to do so, however there was only one 8 pin slot on the motherboard, I checked several times and looked in the layout as well.


DVD Drive: ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM ...

CPU: Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155

PSU: SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V

VGA: XFX Double D FX-787A-CDFC Radeon HD 7870

MOBO: ASRock Z77 Extreme4

use the 8 pin (although you can use 1 4 pin)
Do the fans in the psu turn on? It will not be the first time a brand new psu is doa

Have you tested the power supply?(paper clip trick)
Is it getting power?
You have the switch on the back on?

the old paper clip trick you short the green wire to any black wire on the mobo plug (unplug it from the mobo!) that will at least turn the power supply on doesnt mean its good but will let you know its getting power



the best way is to test it in another pc.
