I've got all the parts and have started building. The motherboard is mounted on the standoffs. The cpu is in the socket with a heatsink + fan above it. They are screwed into the motherboard. The power supply is in and the 24 pin connector is connected to the motherboard. The SSD is connected. The RAM is in the correct channel. I also have a bunch of cords that i've hooked up to the motherboard. At the moment I haven't installed the video card, wireless card, or DVD burner. I just want it to start up and make sure everything is working fine. I turned on the power supply and pressed the power switch button on the case, but it doesn't start up. Is there something i'm missing? I noticed that the RAM might not be pressed in all the way. The henges don't seem to snap back all the way. I've applied quite a bit of pressure to the point where i'm not comfortable. I can't tell if the RAM modules are all the way in or not.
I was thinking that at the case fan and cpu fan should start up, am I wrong?
