Won't Power Up in the Case

Won't Power Up in the Case
Hello,
My newly built won't power up in the case. However it does power up while breadboarding. The pins from the case are connected to the front panel, yet still nothing. I already tried reversing them as well. Could the case my defective? Could a case even be defective?

Specs:
Intel Core i5-3570k
G.Skill 8gb
Gigabyte z77-d3h
Antec HCG 620m
XFX Radeon HD 6870
Zalman Z9 Plus

RE: Won't Power Up in the Case
By breadboarding, I assume that you mean assembling your PC outside your case? How did you power it up outside of the case?

Case buttons can sometime be defective, but both the power and reset button is a rare thing.

Do the case fans start spinning/move at all? I'm thinking you might have a short somewhere, preventing your PC from starting.

Yes, i assembled it outside the case before placing it in the case. All I did was short the PW Switch and Reset SW together and it started up. Everything works, even installed windows. But once inside the case, the only way to start it is by shorting the two pins. Power button does not work.

RE: Won't Power Up in the Case
I see, sounds like a defective case then, seeing as everything else works and you installed Windows.

Ok, I figured it out. I didn't realise the power connectors were disconnected in front panel. Everything works now.

That would explain your issue! Glad to hear that you've figured out and that your PC is working fine now Smile

RE: Won't Power Up in the Case
I didn't want to make a new thread, so I'll just post my question here.
So I have the Zalman Z9 Plus case, it comes with 4 fans 2 outtake 2 intake. I want to place my side panel fan onto the bottom. But I'm afraid the cords and wires would cause some kind of problem. Would anything happen to the cords or wires if I place the fan at the bottom?

P.S. I didn't want to place the fan onto the side because I had no room. Also the bottom fan would be an intake.

i always place a fan shroud on any bottom fans, but thats just me. im usually a victim of murphy's law.

i suppose if you neaten your cabling and wire tie them around the fan it might be ok. i wouldnt cross any cable over the top of it if you dont add a shroud.

good luck
