Hi. This topic here: http://www.geekstogo...22#entry2087922 is related to this one as that's how I came about to buy a new motherboard.

Here's the link to the new motherboard: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813138323

Link to new memory: http://www.tigerdire...8415&CatId=4534

When I received this motherboard in the mails, the CPU was already on the board, so I went ahead and put on the stock fan, connected the fan cable to the motherboard, installed the RAM, then finally the PSU which was the old PSU I used for the old motherboard. But computer would not power up when I pressed the power button. I triple checked to make sure I had connected everything correctly, which I'm sure I did. I just didn't connect the audio and usb on the front panel yet, but that's not my concern right now.

Here are some pictures of it:

Please help. Thanks.

Please disregard this topic. It appears the power button was the cause. I changed to another computer case where the button worked and computer powered up as expected.
