Internal I/O Connectors 3 x USB connectors support additional 6 USB ports
1 x IDE connector
6 x SATA connectors
1 x CPU Fan connector (1x4-pin)
1 x Chassis Fan connector (1x3-pin)
1 x LPT connector
1 x S/PDIF Out Header
Front panel audio connector
1 x COM connector
1 x Clear CMOS jumper
1 x 24-pin ATX Power connector
1 x 8-pin ATX 12V Power connector System Panel
To achieve this with your present PSU you can connect 2 of the 4 pin molex connections (left) from the PSU to one of the 12V 8 pin adapters (right) as pictured below;
Some further info;
Depending on the power supply, the connector may contain one 12 volt rail in all 8 pins or two 12 volt rails taking up 4 pins apiece. It is often referred to as an "EPS12V" cable.
As your MB did not have the blank covering 4 of the 8 pins it suggests 8 pins are required, is there no information in the MBs user manual regarding this!

P.S. I didn't have to use the 4 pin plug

It is not uncommon for someone to have a stand off in the wrong place or to many of them.

ok so i tried getting the monitor, took the mobo out of the case, on a cardboard box, hooked everything up, and started it up, and I got video!! I hooked up the HDD and the dvd drive and it worked and asked for the disk to install the OS.
Then you said
So I put everything back into the case and...nothing.
Now you say
And as I said, it won't work OUTSIDE of the case, so it's not a case short.
From the first comment it sounds like it did work outside the case even to the point of asking for the installation disk.
You put it back in the case and it does not work so that tells me there is a problem with the board being mounted correctly.

FYI do the bench test before installing the new motherboard. That way if there is a issue you will catch it before installation.
Something I learned in the years I have been repairing and building systems. It will also give you the benefit of being able to tell the manufacturer that the board was tested with the minimal amount of connections made.
This topic will remain open so when you do get the new mobo and it does show to be good please do post with your results good or bad. We like to know and it could help someone later with the same problem. GOOD LUCK
