Make sure the wide 24-pin connector cable is firmly plugged into the motherboard. Then short the Power pins on the motherboard with an insulated flat-bladed screwdriver. If the computer powers up then your fron panel power switch needs replacing.

Do not use washers unless mobo manual says to use them. Most mobos require electrical ground contact through the seating screws.

Re: help no power

This is a typically problem when you don't have the motherboard proerly seated. Some part of the board must be touching the metal contacts when you screw down the board to the case which causes a short. Try to reseat the motherboard and also make sure you're using washers in between where you screw down the motherboard to the case. That should fix your issue (Unless there's something wrong with the motherboard all-together).

Power supply compitable for cac-to5-uw?

ATX is a standard.
Any case described as ATX should accept any ATX powers supply.

The only thing you need to decide is how many watts the power supply needs to provide.
To find this out, put "Computer power supply calculator" into Google.
Pick one, or several, and enter the details of what you are going to put in the case.
Enter what you would like to put in the case finally, not just the bits you have to start with.
Like that second internal hard drive, and double the memory, Two DVD drives.
Extra cooling fans?
Then pick a pick a power supply that provides more than that.
No-one has ever run into problems with a power supply running too cool.

Installed a GA H55M USB3 motherboard in a Raidmax Tornado case. When I go to turn it on their is power for about for about a 1sec and the fans turn a couple of times and a couple of seconds later their is...

I once had something similar happen to me. Triple check to see that all connections are secure to the motherboard - a loose 20 pin ATX cable was the culprit in my case.
Hope that helps. Good luck!

Won't power on is there a fuse

Hi, have you installed everything, I know its the obvious thing but I have bult hundreds of PCs and its always the smallest thing that catches you out!. Go back and double check your connections, even removing every component and starting again is a good idea sometimes. Good luck. (there is no fuse)

Computer cases

an at case doesnt have the extra ports than an atx case has, take for instance an atx motherboard has printer port, comp port, usb and ps2 ports near the top left side, an at motherboard only has an at keyboard connector, all the other things are put in an empty isa/pci slot

Here is a picture of an AT motherboard note top right the keyboard port and the white strip behind that is a 1 row set of pins for the power as the switch is in the power supply and not on the motherboard

And This is an ATX motherboard you can see the 20pin atx power connector, because the motherboard has an electronic switch to control the power.

The on/off connector is the power labelled one. The one thing you may have to do is (if you have'nt already)connect the power connector from the PSU to the processor power supply, close by to it as it may not just run off the motherboard ZIF socket for it's power up.
