Note that motherboard typically take more than one power connection - are you sure it all connected properly?

Also, a common newbie mistake is to install more standoffs in the case than the motherboard has corresponding mounting holes. This is due to the fact cases are designed to support 1000s of different motherboards.

So I recommend you pull the board and verify you have one-for-one case standoff to motherboard mounting hole/screw.

as a addition to what Digerati said, did you check if you connected the power button wire in the right position and on the right connector?

i have seen people connect it horizontal, while its was suppose to be vertical and the other way around, that depends on the motherboard.
