What I would do is take everything out of the case, and re-build it, maybe the mobo is touching the case, and shorting out. Or, contact DFI, via phone, and get live techie support.

When you did everything and all checked, it's a bad motherboard.

Tommy Boy is seconded by me.

It might not just be a bad motherboard have you changed the LED Wires round on the Mobo because i had the exact same problem and it was HDD LED and PWR LED Was connected the wrong way round on the Mobo Panel Header. E.G PWR LED+ was to PWR LED- On mobo.

when i built my comp, i put electrical tape over all of the screw holes, then pocked a small hole for the screw, therefore, no shorting out against the case! i win!

ghetto style, screw that case, assemble everything outside of the case....see if it works.....

Ok, just plug in your power switch into the motherboard for now, see what happens then.

These things..



Just the power one for now.
