Windows 7: shutdown/startup

You do not attach cables to jumper plugs if you have then you have most probably damaged the motherboard.
To save confusion it may be helpful if you were to post a photo showing exactly where you have attached this cable.
If the case itself is getting hot I would suggest checking that the board is correctly installed. The MB attaches to the case wall via screws into brass standoffs which are screwed into the inside case wall if one of these brass standoffs is in the wrong position then it may well have caused a short circuit, which in turn would lead to heat and a damaged MB

nope not cables. the power switch, reset switch, hdd activity led, system warning speaker and power led. not to be confused with the usb cables or front panel audio ac'97.

its the System panel connector (20-8 pin panel).

Build A PC - Connect The System Panel Cables


the jumper cables/cords/wires lead from the individual buttons/led/usb sockets to a sealed black box. from there the cables/cords/wires all travel through canal/tunnel/bottle neck, along the case side. at that point the temperature was passing through the plastic and causing a 'hot spot' on the outside. see attached.

edit: the system warning speaker cable itself was quite hot

You had me worried for a min lol call them plugs not jumpers

I think it would be wise not to use this case again, if you cannot see the extent of the damage, that plus the faulty power switch, I would recommend getting a new case.

just an update. i purchased the ANTEC 1200 V3 Ultimate Case. When i carefully removed the mb to the new case i noticed that there was a stray screw under the mb. possably fell behind there during the first construction. i replaced the silver looking standoffs with bronze looking ones. it works well so far.

just a small question, a screw behind the mb can cause a short? i assume terrable/degenerative damage is also caused? could one of these things cause the system warning speaker jumper plug to react differently? as in heat up and break?

Nice case It could possibly cause overheating yes, I would carefully inspect the board for damage (burn marks) and if it seems OK and as you say runs OK it maybe possible that you are lucky Time will tell.
If the system speaker is your only problem I would leave it disconnected, its a small price to pay when you could have lost the MB and maybe other hardware.
