ok guys I need help, i am building my first pc.
Well I bought the gigabyte p35c mobo, antec 900, ocz 700 watts power supply, gskill 2gb 800, 8800gts 320mb. E6750, zalman cooler
Anyways so i tried putting all the parts together and I think i connected everything following the manuals, the only part I got a little confused was when putting where the 3 pin cable from the zalman cooler..On my mother board there is a cpu_fan which is 4 pin, and 2 sys_fan and a pwr_fan
I dont know where to the put this cable. ANyways I tried to turn the pc on and nothing seems to run, I turned the button on at the back of the psu and no fan, no noting is running, I dont see any green light on the mobo either..What am i doing wrong? I tried putting the zalam cable both on the cpu_fan and the sys_fan but still not luck! Is my psu dead? or maybe the mobo? I need help!

It's because you getting the ground instead of the negative pin if I remember correctly. Place the 3pin cable into the 4pin motherboard slot (cou_fan), have 1st pin on your left not plugged into the cable. I have the same motherboard series, good choice :whistling:

Lol, I thought your only problem was the CPU fan. Glade to see you found your problem.
