I'm trying to assemble a new Tier 7 gaming PC in an old HAF 922 case (by the way, you can't fit a case fan into the HAF 922 if you're running the Tier 7 CPU cooler). I finished last night but it failed to turn on. The motherboard standby power light was on, however.

This morning when I turned it on, the motherboard light was blinking, which I took to indicate a short. I removed the motherboard from the case and removed all the parts from the motherboard except for the CPU and cooler. I disconnected all power except for the 24 pin motherboard power. Despite this, the motherboard standby power light is still blinking. Does this indicate a permanently broken motherboard?
