so i just replaced my motherboard and i cant figure this out. 

it WILL NOT even start to power up inside the case. 

i take it out of the case, it fires up immediately, put it carefully back in the case, it refuses to start.

put some paper mobo washers under it, fires up once, now refuses to do so again, i think it shifted, my next step is to try some plastic pegs instead of the metal ones. 

ideas? mobo is a gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3

Issue with the power button of the case?

Power switch wires connected to the appropriate pins of the mobo?


Colored the appropriate pins red in this pic.

strangely, it randomly started booting, i suspect the power button may be a little wonky, as  hadnt done anything between refusng  to power and powering
