The wires for the F Panel on this case don't say + or - except the two that specify.  I am not sure I have them connected right at all.  On the back of some, all I see is an arrow.  IS that supposed to be +?  This is my first build by myself and it won't power on except for a minute and the only thing I can think of is those may be plugged in wrong.  I do see the power button light and the LED for the DVD drive, but only for a second before it powers off, along with a fan.  That's it.  Funny thing is that I have fixed lots of other issues with computers and replaced parts, but I have never seen this issue before. 

 

Sorry hit enter before putting in the specs.

DDR3-  Kingston Hyper X 4GB (2x2GB) 1600

Some of the front panel connectors don't mind which way they are connected (Power switch, Reset switch).  The LED's do have to be connected up the right way though, or they won't work.

 

I would suggest checking your other connections too (double check the 8 pin ATX12V power lead is connected)

Check CPU fan is connected

Remove and reseat RAM firmly

If all good disconnect power and clear the CMOS by shorting the CLR_CMOS jumper

Try again

 

There is a possibility the CPU is not supported with the BIOS that's installed.  The board seems to have two versions, Revision 4.1 and Revision 5.  The Rev. 5 board is a blackish colour, while the 4.1 is blue.  In the earlier revision, the BIOS needs to be version F3 or newer to support the CPU you have.  The Rev. 5 board should work with it out of the box though.

Ok, now I feel silly.  I completely forgot the ATX 12V Power Lead.  As soon as I read that, I knew what it was.  I guess I was so distracted with the F Panel, I missed it.  Thank you so much for posting this reply.
