OK so I have finally gotten everything together. There was a hiccup with the Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 700-Watt Power Supply. It was DOA! mad.gif After having been up all day yesterday and working I decided I would go ahead and do the build since everything had arrived. After several hours of careful cable routing and taking my time to make sure that everything was correct I plugged the power supply into the wall and BAM!.......... Absolutely nothing, no lights, no fans, no POST, no beeps, just Silence mad.gif So I pulled the motherboard out, connected the 24 pin and ATX 12V connectors and nothing. So after much research I came across someone who recommended to try a jumper across a green and black wire from the PSU to see if the fan would spin on the PSU, again nothing. A quick search revealed that Best Buy had a Thermaltake SMART M850 watt PSU in stock. So I went and picked it up, returned home plugged into the mobo and jumped the power switch pins and voila! Beautiful red LED lights, spinning fans, and glorious BEEEP! After that it was time to take a nap after 26 hours of being awake.

After a quick 4 hour nap, and several cups of coffee I got back to work. Put everything back in the case and fired "Scorpius Maximus Octavius" up. I then installed windows 8 and everything is running GREAT! Pics coming soon
