Question New Case Help ??

I just got a new case for my pc. My PC is a home built system and I just wanted a new look for it. I got a Raidmax Sirus case. I disconnected everything from my old system and put it in the new (keeping my existing power supply and all). When I put it in the new system, it beeps at me where and shuts off automatically. The setup is the same except the case. Now the case does have a gauge for temp, fan speed and hard drive status where my other case does not. Everything appears to be working correctly and when I put it back in the old system it works fine.

Any ideas where the problem could be?? Could it be that I have the gauges wrong?

Did you try running the computer without the gauges connected?

I believe victory only exist at the end, no matter how the factors present it.

the ambiet temperature setting on your new case is making trouble. as it might be sensing temperature too high to shut down the pc.

I did try without. I did notice no matter if the temp gauge is plugged in or not, it seems to go into the 'red zone' on the gauge. I had another case that had a temp gauge and it did the same thing, with that case I got so dang frustrated and just didn't try anything (the problem with that case ended up being a power supply though)
