Default PC isn't working

I got a new case for my computer and I, very carefully, moved everything to the new case. PSU is in the sig along with everything else. Got the HAF 932. I turn it on and all the fans and their LEDs turn on, the monitor gets power, but it's blank. So fans on, but nothing else. It was working an hour ago but not anymore. Any help?

I would suggest rechecking and reseating everything. Memory, CPU, cooler, drives, cables, wires.

Is the 4/8 pin AUX power plugged in near the CPU?

You put the standoffs under the motherboard, correct?

I would remove everything, and rebuild on a piece of antistatic foam or cardboard.

That did it. My old case didn't have standoffs and so I guess I just overlooked it. Thanks for the help. Works awesome now.

Standoffs are a necessity since they prevent the board to short with the case. And...it's also a neat place to hide some wires

If you hide wires, make sure they are not too thick. This can cause some weird problems down the line.

Such as bent motherboards, which can cause paths to break.
