Well if it only doesn't turn on when it's in the case then you have a short somewhere in the case.

Check that the motherboard or any PCI cards aren't touching anything on the case except for where you screwed the board onto the spacers. You did use the brass spacers right?

Yes i used them. I may take the board out again and try it out of the case with the graphics card.
i noticed the ports arent really square with the back panel either so it may be touching sumwere

The ports on the back are all grounded so it's fine if they're touching that.

Alright everythings together and its running now just gotta wait on a new hd to really get it going but i think the problem was i had an extra standoff put in that was just setting on the bottom of the board.
But thanks guys for sticking with me through this frustrating ordeal.
