Problems with Cooler Master Centurion 5 (jumpers, GPU)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I finally got my rig in the sig today and pieced it all together. Problem is, I can't get it to start. The PSU is fine as far as I know so I believe the problem is my connections to the mobo from the front chassis with the power switch and indicator lights. The manual doesn't explain what's positive and what's negative on the jumpers. They have an "arrow" and a "G" on them. However I've tried just about every combination and still haven't seen any life.

My 8800GTS doesn't fit entirely either, which is kinda irritating. It's making contact inside the PCI-E slot, however it's just a touch out because the metal bracket on the top of the card are already against the metal of the case above the slot hole. It doesn't wiggle too much so it should be okay.

Any suggestions about the start-up issue and maybe if anyone knows those jumper configurations since the manual doesn't say squat?

Thx all.

"G" = ground and thus is the negative. Generally, the colored cables are the positives and the black or white one the negatives


I think your problem lies in the fact your GTS isn't properly mounted. It should be FULLY insered in the PCI-E slot. Otherwise, it's a no-go.

Just a side note: did you install the motherboard standoffs? I've seen it happen too many times that people forget those, and your comment about your video card seems to indicate you might have forgotten those (they're little brass screw thingies that come with your case... they should be mounted between the case and your mobo).

That would also explain why my mobo doesn't line up with the face plate on the back either. Guess I'm a victim of forgetting those as well. *doh*

On that note, there's also 4 screws that are a bit larger then the others, they look like they have a nut attached and the underside is rigid (look kind of like blades). Any ideas what these are for?

Those might be the screws used to screw in the side panels.
I know those are a bit larger.
Do you have a pic? I have the same case as well.

The power switch can be connected either way as it doesn't matter which one positive goes on and which one negative goes on, circuit will connect either way

Also, without these wouldn't that short the entire motherboard since the underside is making contact with the case? I just thought about this since I tried to turn it on many times. However I'm hopeful it's all good since I didn't see sparks, no fans jolted, no lights turned on, nothing turned on for a split second. ...This also leads me to believe that the switch isn't hooked up properly, but can't understand why as it's hooked exactly where it should be on the mobo.

Any way, first things first with the stand-offs which I'll get to at lunch.

I'll try and get a pic up after I get off work.

Yeah - you have to use the standoffs. Don't try and boot if you haven't used them.
