Small Problem in Building a Custom Case

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm building a Silent PC Case for my Design & Technology GCSE in school,but I've come across one problem....

I never even thought about it until I looked at my case, A Power Button!!!


How am I supposed to turn on the system without a Power Button??


Could someone suggest what they used and send me a link please??

You can use a screwdriver or other metal object to short the power pins on the motherboard and turn the computer on.

Well, I've never tried this method and it probably depends on the motherboard but:
