Nervously, I plugged in the power cable to the HX1000...
I hear a faint snap of electricity and look inside the case and notice the standby led on the motherboard lit up, and the pulsing orange lights behind the board doing their thing. I light up a cigarette and push the power button on top of the case.
Nothing! Oh yeah- I haven't hooked up the power and reset buttons yet lol
That's okay, there's a power button connected directly to the mainboard.

Anxiously, I push the button... worrying the whole time that I have something wired wrong and that I am going to fry something.

The fans spin for a fraction of a second then nothing. I notice the dimm led on the motherboard is now lit. hmmm. Damn!

Where do I start throubleshooting this?
I start by unplugging some of the peripheral cables from the power supply. I push the power button again after resetting the psu by flipping the rocker switch back and forth.

It lives! but something is wrong. I start plugging in things one by one and seeing if it will power on. Ahha! Something is wrong with the wiring going to the hot-swap bays (stock ones that came with the case). Additionally, my fans are barely spinning and the lights (onyx and door) are not lighting so I think that the fan controller is currently connected to the 5v instead of the 12v.

I shut down the machine and switched the 2 outside cables of the fan controller molex plug.
That fixed that! The fans are running like they should and the lights are lit and dimmable thumb.gif

Now I just need to fix the hotswap wiring and hope I didn't fry the hdds in those two bays..
I'll check into it tomorrow and if I can figure it out, then I can organize the cables on the back and call this build done!

Then I will try to find someone to come over with a good camera and take some money shots!
Wish me luck and thanks for looking and please leave your comments!

I have been nominated for June Mod of the Month, so If you like what you see, then make sure and vote when the poll opens!

Very nice Bob! We can clearly see that you are getting more and more comfortable with sleeving techniques. The 2 last ones are perfect. thumb.gif

Well I got all the wiring figured out. It turns out I had 2 wires in the wrong positions. One on the fan controller power cable, and the other on the stock hot-swap power cable. Luckily for me, it wasn't too hard to get straightened out.

I have tidied up the wires on the backside of the motherboard, and everything is working like it is supposed to thumb.gif

Next up is to update the first post with some build pics for the motm contest. I will also post it here.

Thanks for your support and wish me luck cheers.gif
