Re: P965 platinum problem
You get nothing when you press power?? No lights, no fans spinning, nothing?
And the power button is correctly connected to the motherboard, right?
Is the motherboard touching the metal tray that it's screwed onto anywhere? It could be causing a short. Also, make sure the right number of screws are screwed into the right slots. You may want to assemble the parts outside the case on a non-conductive surface to be sure it's not shorting out.
Unplug all the components except the PSU, motherboard, CPU, heatsink, RAM, and video card. Then see if it works. If it works like that, one of the other parts is causing the problem.
Most likely, the motherboard is shorting out as long as it's in working condition.
