Gets power when just the power is connected but when I run the cable to the motherboard, there is no reaction. Just finished putting the thing together, building from the ground up. Could it be that the optical drive isn't compatible with a SATA3? I thought the board would recognize 1, 2, or 3 but maybe I'm mistaken. Using 970 Extreme 3 and the Optical is an older LG GH22NS70 listed as SATA1. If this is the problem, does anybody know I work around until I can get a newer optical?

Help, I can't get further til I have this done.

Also, now I'm not sure if the graphics card will work with the motherboard, since I'm not gaming (recording studio) I don't need amazing graphics & went with an older card there as well. But we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

Thanks in advance
