ok the main thing u need 2 check if ur still having problems and it wont turn on but u have power is your jumper settings. i would pull them all out and make sure u put them in the right order for sure. lol, if u still can't get it 2 turn on check ur motherboard for any damage like dents or anything like that. if ur still having problems take out all ur componets like vid card hardrive cd drive, and see if it will turn on then. if it wont turn on with only the PSU CPU and ram then i would think it is ram. if none of this helps then let me kno >.<

no no no....i was just saying i flipped the switch....the one to turn it on...i've seen what happens when its set to 230 it usually blows everything......Well....I'm guessing the riser piece that was already installed and is underneath in like the middle of the board may be causing a short too....i'm gonna check all this out tomorrow when hopefully my friend is here cause he has built plenty of computers so he'll know exactly what to do....My jumpers came preset so i doubt its them....if you could get a picture of the Abit AN8-ultra board and then circle the spots where the case fans should go...cause right now there is like 6 different places they could go.....just keep giving me ideas...if you give me a list with bullets or numbers it will be easy for me to use that tomorrow to plan out my ideas.....thanks for everything

well one thing about the fans is that engraved on the motherboard right next 2 the plug it will tell you what it is (i.e rear fan 1, rear fan 2, front fan 1 etc.) there might also be one for chipset(northbridge or southbridge) and it may be colored differnetly, and it will also tell u engraved next 2 it as well. hopefully that helps you.

It depends on the location and type of fan.

the four pin male one should be plugged to a psu 4 pin female (or the female and male reversed) . i dont know any 3 pin plugs that comes from the fan.....but that shouldnt be a problem, as long as the 4 pin is connected the fan should go on.
