Geeks to go, I need your help. I've built my own computer a while ago in another case. Two days ago, I bought a new case, the noctis 450. All the led lights on the case worked except for the ones surrounding the power button. I chose to ignore it but today, the NZXT logo's LED lights also turned off. After doing some research, I suspect it could be a problem with the power supply. However, I want to be sure before I go buy a new power supply, so I ask you to help me figure out what the problem is that is causing the case's LED lights not to turn on.

The components in my computer are as such:

MSI GTX 980 ti Lightning
Noctis 450 case
Antec 450w psu
Intel core i7 6700k
Gigabyte z170x gaming 7

:welcome:   OSC2000,

 

If the computer itself is working ok then it is not likely to be the PSU and more likely to be the case wiring or the the LEDs themselves, incidently, MSI recommend a 400W PSU for their card but other sources suggest 600W and 42 amps on the +12V rail, depending on which particular model of 450W Antec you have, it is obviously 150W less than game debate recommends  but it also may not produce the recommended amount of amps either..

Turns out it was not a problem with my build but rather with the case's LEDS itself. I had to get a new case as I still had warranty. Thank you for your help, you saved me from buying a new PSU.
