New Build - No Power w/ Case Fans [Resolved]
I just put together my build and I am not getting any response from the power supply (Rosewill Hive 550w). -

Build:

i5 2500k
ASrock Extreme 3 Gen 3 Z68
Corsair Vengeance 8gb
Rosewill Hive 550w
Antec 300 Illusion Case
Seagate Barracuda 1TB

Edit:
I have not received my video card yet so there is not one installed. I've also checked the connections to the motherboard.

Edit2:
It seems to be my case fans causing the problem. With the peripheral cable unplugged from the power supply, it will boot. It will not boot when the case fans are connected. I am using a single cable for all 4 fans, should I separate them to two each?

Edit 3: Alright, so am I not supposed to connect the chassis fan connector to the motherboard? Everything works and boots perfect with that not connected to the motherboard.

Final Edit: It works!

RE: New Build - No Power w/ Case Fans.
If you're using one cable to connect all four fans to one header on the motherboard, that's probably too much of a load for a single connector on the motherboard to handle. Two cables plugged into two connectors, with two fans on each, should be fine.

Fans can be plugged into either the motherboard or the power supply, so if it works with the power supply, you can just leave it that way.

RE: New Build - No Power w/ Case Fans.
That makes sense. I'll just keep them plugged into the power supply. Each fan has its own mini controller connected so if I need to adjust speeds or anything and can just use them.

Thanks for the advice Mathieu! I've got Window's 7 installing now, another successful build courtesy of HR! I'll post a pic thread later to show off my build and atrocious cable management.
