Sorry for the double post but I got two new screens for my birthday and I just finished setting them up. I also did some maintenance in the Scout to fix the wires a tiny bit. The inside seems so boring to me, trying to think of what I want to do to spice it up a little bit. Let me know your thoughts! smile.gif

A year ago I bought the Studio XPS 8100 from dell and have been periodically upgrading it. I just bought my storm scout case and I'm having a problem - once I've installed everything, it won't start up.

At first I thought it was the power supply, but I tested it in another computer in my house and it booted up fine. I took out my graphics card and hard drives and just put in the motherboard and power supply, tried to boot up, and still nothing. There is a light on the motherboard that says it has power. At this point, I am thinking I do not have the power switch attached correctly to the motherboard.

I can post a picture of my motherboard and what I have it as right now. One problem I found was that my motherboard does not have all the spots for case cables - I can't find anywhere to plug in the LED cables (fans nor HDD), or the reset button. This is the second time I've put a computer together from scratch, but the first time in a new case.

So what could I be doing wrong? Could I have shorted out the motherboard? If it was shorted out., would there still be a power light?

First you need to double check your copper Standoffs on the boards. These motherboards from the companies rarely follow the other standards. They like making things difficult.. Here is a your motherbooard stand off pattern. Make sure you have those exactly the same or you short out the board.

Now you should go over your wiring

Number 13 is the pins you need to ID.. All of them.. not just the power but also the harddrive reset

Looking at the pins from the side where there are 5 pins on the bottom and 4 on top. The top two sould be the power led the two next to that should be the power switch, the bottom two to the left should be the hard drive led and the two next to that should be reset.

Thank you so much! This worked after a little research for more specificity, you are a god! Thanks.

Hi All biggrin.gif

Its been a very very long time since i posted on here and much has changed with my system.

First off I am now an Intel i7 2600k owner!....Complete with a man sized ATX Gigabyte ga-z68-ud5-b3 motherboard! eek.gif The AMD system unfortunately had to go as Rendering with keyshot 3 was becoming painfully slow ( took 47 hours to render something the i7 2600k can do in 3 hours).

Secondly the sapphire 5850 is gone! been replaced with 2x sapphire 6850's......I actually was suppose to order another 5850 to crossfire but i didn't read the listing properly on amazon and accidentally ordered the 6850 doh.gif so I had to get another one as i really really wanted to try CF biggrin.gif

I know some of you my think i am mad for going sandy when ivy is just around the corner but i got a really really good deal on the gear smile.gif

anyway here is some pictures (sorry they are a bit dark)

399

399

399

Did a slight mod to my case to tidy the 24 pin power cable up still waiting for my sleeved extension to arrive via snail mail frown.gif also notched the case slightly to allow for my sata cables to exit without bending

700

And finally i notched my hand made psu cover out to allow the USB and control cables to pass through without showing their ugliness smile.gif

399

here is some images that took only 45 mins to render with the i7 @ 4.3ghz (its a uni project i have been working on).....this would have taken nearly seven hours on my x3 450 @ 3.6 eek.gif

323

let me know what you guys think? smile.gif

I really like the pictures; although they are dark, they are still very good. +1 for the system!!!
post #24148 of 28613
hey guys, i have a quick question.

i replaced my top panel because i had a short (plugging in usbs caused system to shut down). so i replaced the top panel today with the one i got from CM store.

everything is connected properly and all, but the power LED light is still solid red even after I shutdown. the good news is that my 4 front usbs are working again.. computer does not turn off when i plug in front panel usbs.

but regarding the power LED still lit after system is shutdown, is that a problem?

Thanks in advance and Happy New Year to fellow Scout members!!

Don't think theres a problem, Seems a bit strange. But shouldn't cause any problems for you.

Happy new year Scout!
