Case/Mobo Shutdown On OS Shutdown?

Hi everyone,

I just built my first computer and am curious how I can, if possible, make my case and mobo shutdown/restart when those options are chosen from my OS.

Currently I can choose shutdown or restart in Windows 8 and the OS will shutdown, but the case remains on and I have to hold down the power button to get the actual computer to shut off.

Is this a bios thing? I haven't been able to find anything about it in the manual. Any help would be great!

  1. Oops, forgot build info:

    GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 Motherboard
    CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W Power Supply
    Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz Processor
    Running Windows 8
  2. Old computer used to be running like that but i've never heard of some motherboard sitll doing that, generally they'll shut themself down...

    Have you overclocked something or you're all at stock

    Try to load default or optimised default in bios, it can resolve the issue if that's a bios settings...
  3. All bios settings are stock at the moment. No overclocking.

    Like I said it was my first build, would it be doing this if my connections are screwy between my case and mobo?
