Re: this is getting so frustrating
It's not even powering on?
Check you've put spacers between the motherboard and the case, first of all. Plugged in the 24 pin power connector, the 4pin motherboard power cable as well, and you have the case powerswitch little wires on right. If you look at the wires from your case, there will be a tiny little arrow on the end if its a double one, that arrow, that's the +.
And you've plugged in at the mains, and turned the power supply on?
