Have you tried reversing the polarity of the connector on the motherboard pins?

Just turn the POWER_LED wire connector upside down and plug it in. Some motherboards have wonky pin 1 locations.

I will try this... I know when I first built it... whenever i turned the power off it would turn right back on until i flipped the pin connector...
And now I don't remember if the light ever worked since I did that

I will check when I get home tonight, thank you!

OK I tried this... and see if you can wrap your head around my problem...
If i hook all my cables up properly... I have no Power LED...
If I flip my PWR_SW so it is upside down, my system comes on if there is power going to the motherboard, and I have a Power LED... but it is impossible to turn my system off...
If I put the PWR_SW back the correct way, and plug in a different Power LED, it lights up like it is supposed to.

So I don't know if there is an odd short somewhere... but It doesnt work right.
Normal Operations gives me no LED
Abnormal Operations gives me LED...

HELP!

Well first things first, the Power Switch and Reset Switch have no polarity requirements - they just short the pins. So turning them upside down should have had absolutely zero effect on the functionality. That's really weird.

The Power LED and RGB LED DO have polarity requirements - they have to be in the right orientation or they won't work. However, I'm not sure I remember if the Power LED has two separate connectors or if they are one connector. Try and hook them up like this (note the space between the Pin 1 and Pin 2 locations on the Power LED connector):

323

If it doesn't work, contact our tech support and we'll replace the panel for you. Sorry for problems.

It really is the weirdest darned thing...
I will double check everything again tonight
then I will set up an RMA...

I guess I can make the RMA two fold for the screws and that front panel!

Thank you for the help... I really love this case!

Well I Just got one of the 400Rs from TigerDirect in a barebones bundle I have gotten everything installed and about ready to go except the PS was suppose to get a corsair 850 watt one but it was back-ordered and when I called for an eta on it they had been told it was discontinued. so I changed to an ultra 750 now just waiting on it to get here so I can finish putting this together and finally use it. I love the way the case is setup I am not one to normally worry about cable management but with this case I am going to try and make my cables clean and look nice unlike all my other builds that I built using the what is cable management mantra...

Quick question, I just ordered the 400R and was wondering is there a hole/space to route the 8pin Power cable to the top of the motherboard ?

Yes, there is a slot for fishing the 12v cable behind the back of the case.
