Windows 7: New CiT Case not turning on for my AMD Athlon 2 mobo

New CiT Case not turning on for my AMD Athlon 2 mobo

Hi all,

I got a new CiT case to accomodate for my ATi HD4870 graphics card. My Packard Bell PC could not fit it in, even though it has a PCI-E slot but the motherboard is one of new DTX ones and they are tiny.

Anyways new CiT Case came today:
CiT 6060 Black Midi Case HD Audio 8cm fan 450W- microdirect.co.uk

I also got a OCZ 600W Stealth Xtreme PSU to go along with the new set-up to ensure all would be ok... Everything seems ot be fine until I get to the part where I try to turn on the damned thing. It doesn't power on at all, no sound, nothing. The CiT case comes with 4 x 2 pin connectors for the front switches:

1. Power switch
2. Reset switch
3. HDD LED display
4. Power on display

The power switch is green and black and for the life of me I can't get the right combination for the connectors. I am trying to add them to the LED area on my mobo in the bottom right area (it's even labelled LED and my other pc connects them there and runs ok). I know it's not the new PSU because I tested it in the smaller case and it runs ok. It's just he dammed CiT case! Can anyone please help!

According to Belaric Advisor, my board is a Packard Bell WMCP78M, it also recognises my pc as a Packard Bell imedia S3210, weird...

Make sure you're grounding correctly.

Also, the switch could be pulled out of the front slightly (where it connects to the power switch), make sure it's firmly in place.

Do they have to be inserted in any order? I have mine like this:

Power Switch - HDD Lights
Reset Switch - Power light - Other

They take up 8 pin slots all together, I just might get another case and sell this one because it's killing me! Do you know of any good cases with simple power switch, reset, etc led connectors?

Well, you may need to check and make sure you're putting the + and - pins in the right place, it changes motherboard to motherboard, check your manual.

If you want to go the route of buying another case, newegg.com has a good selection you can browse through, find one you like then find someplace that ships where your at and buy it.
